Even without active pacemaker mechanisms, temporally patterned synchronization of neural network activity can emerge spontaneously and is involved in neural development and information processing. Generation of spontaneous synchronization is thought to arise as an alternating sequence between a state of elevated excitation followed by a period of quiescence associated with neuronal and/or synaptic refractoriness. However, the cellular factors controlling recruitment and timing of synchronized… CONTINUE READING
