Recent physiological studies have implicated theta - a high-amplitude 4-8 Hz oscillation that is prominent in rat hippocampus during locomotion, orienting and other voluntary behaviors - in synaptic plasticity, information coding and the function of working memory. Intracranial recordings from human cortex have revealed evidence of high-amplitude theta oscillations throughout the brain, including the neocortex. Although its specific role is largely unknown, the observation of human theta has… Expand
