RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 63279497 LA English T1 Rhythms of the brain A1 Buzsáki, G., PB Oxford University Press PP Oxford; New York YR 2006 SN 0195301064 9780195301069 9780199828234 0199828237 AB "Studies of mechanisms in the brain that allow complicated things to happen in a coordinated fashion have produced some of the most spectacular discoveries in neuroscience. This book provides support for the idea that spontaneous neuron activity, far from being mere noise, is actually the source of our cognitive abilities. It takes a fresh look at the co-evolution of structure and function in the mammalian brain, illustrating how self-emerged oscillatory timing is the brain's fundamental organizer of neuronal information." "In a sequence of cycles, Gyorgy Buzsaki guides the reader from the physics of oscillations through neuronal assembly organization to complex cognitive processing and memory storage. His writing accessible to any reader with some scientific knowledge is supplemented by extensive footnotes and references that make it just as gratifying and instructive a read for the specialist."--Jacket.
