Review – Objectives Transitioning 4-5. Spikes can be detected from many neurons near the electrode tip. What are some ways to determine which spikes belong to which neurons? Describe how a tetrode helps isolate spikes
What is an oscillator?
Name two types of oscillators
Components of oscillations
Define differences between types of oscillators:
Oscillators can be considered at the neuron or neural population level. Give a description at each level.
How could resonance at varying frequencies be accomplished? p. 144
What is the low-information problem and what is a neuron’s default state, giving examples.
Define Synchrony, including the concept of a ‘time constant’.
How does synchrony differ across classes of oscillators?
Define stochastic resonance, providing two ‘scenarios’ of how it could operate in the brain.
Describe features of cell assemblies, and why their action may be useful in encoding patterns.
Describe how synchrony is efficient
