Using the tools of universal algebra, it is shown that oscillatory networks realize systematic cognitive representations. It is argued (i) that an algebra of propositions and concepts for objects and properties is isomorphic to an algebra of brain states, neuronal oscillations and sets of oscillations related to clusters of neurons, (ii) that the isomorphism, in a strong sense, preserves the constituent relations of the conceptual algebra, and (iii) that the isomorphism transfers semantic… Expand
