Dr Frederick published work from his dissertation today in The Journal of Neuroscience that looked at neural oscillations in olfactory tasks in rats. From the significance statement to the paper, "Olfactory system gamma (40–110 Hz) and beta (15–35 Hz) oscillations of the local field potential indicate different neural firing statistics and functional circuits. We show that gamma and beta oscillations occur in stereotyped sequence during odor sampling in associative tasks, with local gamma dominating the first 250 ms of odor sniffing, followed by systemwide beta as behavioral responses are… Read more about Dr Frederick Publishes on Brain Oscillations
