Gamma-band synchronization is abundant in nervous systems. Typically, the strength or precision of gamma-band synchronization is studied. However, the precise phase with which individual neurons are synchronized to the gamma-band rhythm might have interesting consequences for their impact on further processing and for spike timing-dependent plasticity. Therefore, we investigated whether the spike times of individual neurons shift systematically in the gamma cycle as a function of the neuronal… Expand
Synchronization principles of gamma rhythms in monkey visual cortex
TLDR
This work reveals the principles of how gamma rhythms synchronize, where phase-dependent frequency variations play a central role, and derived analytical predictions that precisely matched the authors' V1 gamma data across different stimulus conditions. Expand
Orientation selectivity and noise correlation in awake monkey area V1 are modulated by the gamma cycle
TLDR
Spiking activity is produced that carries maximal stimulus selectivity and minimal noise correlation in its firing rate, and at the same time synchronizes this spiking activity for maximal impact on postsynaptic targets. Expand
Cell Type-Specific Control of Spike Timing by Gamma-Band Oscillatory Inhibition.
TLDR
This work performs in vitro whole-cell recordings from 6 cortical neuron subtypes and examines how gamma-band and slow fluctuations in injected input affect precision and phase of spike timing, finding that gamma is at least partially able to restrict the spike timing in all subtypes tested, but to varying degrees.

Neuronal gamma-band synchronization regulated by instantaneous modulations of the oscillation frequency
Neuronal gamma-band synchronization shapes information flow during sensory and cognitive processing. A common view is that a stable and shared frequency over time is required for robust andExpand
Attentional Modulation of Cell-Class-Specific Gamma-Band Synchronization in Awake Monkey Area V4
TLDR
The cell-type-specific dynamics of the gamma cycle in macaque visual cortex are revealed and it is suggested that attention affects neurons differentially depending on cell type and activation level. Expand
The Phase of Oscillation in Cortical Network and Its Relationship with Firing Rate and Neuronal Activation
TLDR
A simplified spiking neuronal network is constructed to simulate orientation columns in primary visual cortex to investigate oscillatory phase and time resolved spectral analyses with a sliding window are thoroughly elucidated. Expand
Input-Dependent Frequency Modulation of Cortical Gamma Oscillations Shapes Spatial Synchronization and Enables Phase Coding
TLDR
It is found that the gamma-mediated temporal organization could be reduced to basic synchronization principles of weakly coupled oscillators, where input drive determines the intrinsic (natural) frequency of oscillators. Expand
Speed Controls the Amplitude and Timing of the Hippocampal Gamma Rhythm
TLDR
A novel influence of speed on the amplitude and timing of the hippocampal gamma rhythm which could contribute to learning of temporal sequences and navigation is demonstrated. Expand
Local differences in neuronal activation level decorrelate spatially coherent global fluctuations in gamma rhythms
TLDR
To identify the mechanism, a statistical technique was developed to isolate the rhythmic component of the spiking process and found that above results are explained by an activation-dependent increase in neuronal sensitivity to gamma-rhythmic input. Expand
Stimulus repetition modulates gamma-band synchronization in primate visual cortex
TLDR
It is proposed that the repetition-related changes in gamma-band synchronization maintain the interareal stimulus signaling and sharpen the stimulus representation by gamma-synchronized pyramidal cell spikes. Expand

The gamma cycle
TLDR
Evidence is reviewed suggesting that the resulting rhythmic network inhibition interacts with excitatory input to pyramidal cells such that the more excited cells fire earlier in the gamma cycle, enabling transmission and read out of amplitude information within a single gamma cycle without requiring rate integration. Expand
Brain Oscillations Control Timing of Single-Neuron Activity in Humans
TLDR
Recording from 1924 neurons indicates that theta and delta oscillations facilitate phase coding and that gamma oscillations help to decode combinations of simultaneously active neurons, providing support for the temporal-coding hypothesis in humans. Expand
Dynamics of striate cortical activity in the alert macaque: I. Incidence and stimulus-dependence of gamma-band neuronal oscillations.
TLDR
The overall similarity of rhythmic neuronal activity in the primary visual cortex of cats and monkeys suggests that the phenomenon is not species-specific, and the stimulus-dependence of the rhythmic activity is consistent with a functional role in visual perception. Expand
Gamma Oscillatory Firing Reveals Distinct Populations of Pyramidal Cells in the CA1 Region of the Hippocampus
TLDR
The results suggest that the two different pyramidal cell classes may support different types of population codes within a theta cycle: one in which spike sequences representing movement trajectories occur across subsequent gamma cycles nested within each theta Cycle, and another in which firing in synchronized gamma discharges without temporal sequences encode a representation of location.

Phase Sensitivity of Synaptic Modifications in Oscillating Cells of Rat Visual Cortex
TLDR
Investigating in layer II/III pyramidal cells of rat visual cortex slices how synapses change when synchronized, oscillatory multifiber activity impinges on postsynaptic neurons during membrane potential (Vm) oscillations at 20 and 40 Hz finds that synaptic plasticity remains exquisitely sensitive to the timing of discharges. Expand
Effect of Stimulus Intensity on the Spike–Local Field Potential Relationship in the Secondary Somatosensory Cortex
TLDR
It is concluded that, in SII, gamma oscillations are synchronized with spikes, but their phase does not vary with stimulus intensity, suggesting that LFP high-gamma power could be a sensitive index of the population firing rate near the microelectrode. Expand
Recurrent Synaptic Input and the Timing of Gamma-Frequency-Modulated Firing of Pyramidal Cells during Neocortical “UP” States
TLDR
It is suggested that this demodulation of recurrent excitation, compared with inhibition, reflects several possible effects, including distributed propagation delays and integration of excitation over wider areas of cortex, and maximizes the capacity for representing information by the timing of recurrentexcitation.

Localizing human visual gamma-band activity in frequency, time and space
TLDR
This work used a stimulus and task design that evoked strong gamma-band activity in animals and combined it with multi-taper methods for spectral analysis and adaptive spatial filtering for source analysis to find human visual gamma- band activity very reliably across subjects and across multiple recording sessions of a given subject.

TLDR
The temporal structure of local field potential activity and spiking from area LIP in two awake macaques during a memory-saccade task was studied and it was found that LFP activity in parietal cortex discriminated between preferred and anti-preferred direction with approximately the same accuracy as the spike rate.

Investigation of the time course of LFP gamma-band power found rapid dynamics consistent with interactions of top-down spatial and feature attention with bottom-up saliency and lends further support for a functional role of rhythmic neuronal synchronization in attentional stimulus selection. Expand
