In vitro work on the rat brain and theoretical investigations have established that networks of GABAergic coupled interneurons play a fundamental role in creating the rhythmicity and synchrony necessary for neuronal oscillations in the gamma (30−80 Hz) and beta (15−30 Hz) bands. To test if related mechanisms are involved in producing the human ~20 Hz cortical rhythms, we recorded the magnetoencephalogram (MEG) from 8 subjects before and after orally administered benzodiazepine (0.08 mg/kg… CONTINUE READING
