[Functional interrelations of brain structures in the cat during the generation of rhythmic activity. III. Cluster analysis of rhythmic indices].

Abstract

The functional interrelationships of the brain structures of freely moving cats in generation of rhythmic EEG activity during the states of drowsiness and light sleep were evaluated using the claster analysis of mean values indexes of rhythms in different structures as well as correlation coefficients between them in time. It was shown that according these parameters visual cortical areas and lateral geniculate body appeared in different clusters. Lateral geniculate body suggested not to be the only pacemaker of EEG rhythms in visual cortex. The wide convergence of subcortical inputs to the visual cortex and possibility of autonomic generation of EEG rhythms at the cortical level are discussed as putative mechanisms of dissociation of EEG activities in visual cortex and thalamus.
