Alpha, beta, gamma: The language of brainwaves - New Scientist - New Scientist
Alpha, beta, gamma: The language of brainwaves - New Scientist - New Scientist: "The rhythmic activity of brainwaves ensures that all the relevant signals relating to the sensation arrive at the binding region at exactly the same time. This allows the receiving neurons to process the signals together, recombining them into a single sensation. "If neurons are oscillating at the same frequency, signals from a stimulus would be treated together because the firing came in at the same time, and at the same point on the oscillation, so that the object is perceived as a whole rather than the separate details," explains Laura Colgin at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology in Trondheim."
