Theta oscillations in memory

I just happen to cross paths with this new fresh article on theta oscillations and human memory: Published: February 03, 2020. DOI: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.tics.2019.12.006 Theta Oscillations in Human Memory Nora A. Herweg, Ethan A. Solomon, Michael J. Kahana I’m a big fan of how they start the paper: “Forming associations between different aspects of our sensory and cognitive…

Our brain is rhythmic and interacts with the rhythms of our environment

This week at the weekly seminar of my research group we’ve read and discussed the following paper: Curr Biol. 2019 Sep 23;29(18):R890-R905. DOI: 10.1016/j.cub.2019.07.075. A New Unifying Account of the Roles of Neuronal Entrainment Lakatos P, Gross J, Thut G. Abstract. Rhythms are a fundamental and defining feature of neuronal activity in animals including humans. This rhythmic brain…

Introduction to Mu Waves

Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) are currently being pursued in several approaches by different researchers and people around the World. One approach is to measure the “Mu Rhythms”, or also known as “Mu Waves” from the sensorimotor area of one’s brain by registering an EEG signal. The Mu Waves are associated with the movement of the body –…
