Evidence accumulated in the past two decades strongly suggests that synchronization of oscillatory neural signals is one of the key mechanisms for integrating and selecting information in distributed networks. Coherence of neural signals allows highly specific patterns of effective neuronal coupling to be set up, thus enabling flexible and context-dependent binding, the selection of relevant information and the efficient routing of signals through processing pathways. In this chapter, we… CONTINUE READING
