Corticofugally induced c-fos expression, synchronized oscillation and its propagation in the thalamus
TLDR
The mechanisms underlying the generation, synchronization and propagation of the spontaneous slow rhythms in the corticothalamic networks within a given modality and across different modalities in animals under anesthesia are investigated by using multi-channel extracellular recordings and immunohistochemical method.
Slow intrinsic rhythm in the koniocellular visual pathway
TLDR
Observations suggest that parallel visual pathways not only carry different kinds of visual signals but also contribute differentially to brain circuits at the first synapse in the thalamus, which raises the possibility that sensory stimuli can be tailored to modify brain rhythms.
Laminar analysis of slow wave activity in humans.
TLDR
It is found that slow wave activity in humans reflects a rhythmic oscillation between widespread cortical activation and silence, which is characterized by hyperpolarizing currents associated with suppressed cell firing, alternating with high levels of oscillatory synaptic/transmembrane activity associated with increased cell firing.
Dynamic Interaction of Spindles and Gamma Activity during Cortical Slow Oscillations and Its Modulation by Subcortical Afferents
TLDR
It is shown that spindles and gamma oscillations coexist but have distinct temporal dynamics across the slow oscillation cycle, suggesting that slow oscillations occur independently of the phasic events that coexist with them.
Neurophysiological and computational principles of cortical rhythms in cognition.
TLDR
A plethora of studies will be reviewed on the involvement of long-distance neuronal coherence in cognitive functions such as multisensory integration, working memory, and selective attention, and implications of abnormal neural synchronization are discussed as they relate to mental disorders like schizophrenia and autism.
Large Scale Cortical Functional Networks Associated with Slow-Wave and Spindle-Burst-Related Spontaneous Activity
TLDR
This work highlights two specific forms of brain activity: slow-wave activity in the adult brain and spindle bursts in developing brain, which are prominent and well-studied forms of spontaneous activity that will yield valuable insights into brain function in the coming years.
Slow cortical rhythms: from single-neuron electrophysiology to whole-brain imaging in vivo.
TLDR
This review will provide an overview of the techniques available for the in vivo study of slow cortical oscillations in animal models, covering both traditional, population-level electrophysiological approaches as well as more recent techniques, such as two photon calcium imaging and optogenetics.
Spatiotemporal Organization and Cross-Frequency Coupling of Sleep Spindles in Primate Cerebral Cortex.
TLDR
Spindles in widespread cortical regions are possibly driven by independent rhythm generators, but are temporally associated to spindle in other regions and to slow and gamma oscillations by corticocortical and thalamocorticals pathways.
Temporal Structure of Neuronal Activity among Cortical Neuron Subtypes during Slow Oscillations in Anesthetized Rats
TLDR
A temporally ordered pattern of output from diverse neuron subtypes in the frontal cortex and related thalamic nuclei during neocortical oscillations is revealed, and the timing of action potentials during slow waves in individual cortical neurons was correlated with their laminar positions and axonal targets.

TLDR
During low-frequency oscillatory states, characteristic of slow-wave sleep, neocortical and thalamic neurons display phase relations that are restricted to narrow time windows, and that synchronization results from a generalized inhibitory phenomenon.
Corticothalamic resonance, states of vigilance and mentation
Intracellular analysis of relations between the slow (< 1 Hz) neocortical oscillation and other sleep rhythms of the electroencephalogram
TLDR
The data indicate that the thalamus is not essentially implicated in the genesis of the slow rhythm, and through the contralateral thalamocortical systems and callosal projections, also transected the corpus callosum in thalamically lesioned animals, and still recorded theslow rhythm in cortical neurons.
Neuronal Plasticity in Thalamocortical Networks during Sleep and Waking Oscillations
Synchronization of fast (30-40 Hz) spontaneous cortical rhythms during brain activation
TLDR
The experiments demonstrate that the conventional notion of a totally desynchronized cortical activity upon arousal should be revised as fast rhythms are enhanced and synchronized within intracortical networks during brain activation.
Phase Synchrony among Neuronal Oscillations in the Human Cortex
TLDR
It is demonstrated, using magnetoencephalography, that robust cross-frequency phase synchrony is present in the human cortex among oscillations with frequencies from 3 to 80 Hz and that it is modulated by cognitive task demands.
Synchronization of fast (30-40 Hz) spontaneous oscillations in intrathalamic and thalamocortical networks
TLDR
The data demonstrate that fast rhythms are part of the background electrical activity of the brain and that desynchronization, used to designate brain-active states, is an erroneous term inasmuch as the fast oscillations are synchronized not only in intracortical but also in intrathalamic and TC networks.
Dynamic properties of corticothalamic neurons and local cortical interneurons generating fast rhythmic (30-40 Hz) spike bursts.
TLDR
The data challenge the conventional idea that sharply defined, invariant features and distinct locations in certain cortical layers characterize some neocortical cell-classes, and suggest that this activity results in integrated fast oscillations within corticothalamic networks.
Interactions between thalamic and cortical rhythms during semantic memory recall in human
TLDR
This work simultaneously recorded from thalamic and scalp electrodes in one human during performance of a cognitive task and found a spatially widespread, phase-locked, low-frequency rhythm power decrease at thalamus and scalp during semantic memory recall, which reflects a plausible neural mechanism underlying semantic memory Recall that may underlie other cognitive processes as well.
Cortical Focus Drives Widespread Corticothalamic Networks during Spontaneous Absence Seizures in Rats
TLDR
These findings argue against the existence of one common subcortical pacemaker for the generation of generalized spike-wave discharges characteristic for absence seizures in the rat and suggest that a cortical focus is the dominant factor in initiating the paroxysmal oscillation within the corticothalamic loops.
