In the early 1990s, Wolf Singer advanced a very provocative idea: Different features of an animal’s world are represented by distinct cell assemblies that can be bound together by oscillatory synchrony (Singer 1993; Singer and Gray 1995). In particular, simultaneous recordings from animal visual, association, somatosensory, and motor areas reveal that the cortical areas involved in task execution synchronize local field potentials (LFPs) when the animals prepare for the task and focus attention… CONTINUE READING
