Volitional control of cortical oscillations and synchrony

Neuron. 2013 Jan 23;77(2):216-8. doi: 10.1016/j.neuron.2013.01.003.


Oscillatory activity in motor cortex has been observed in many experimental contexts, leading to various hypotheses about its possible behavioral function. In this issue of Neuron, Engelhard et al. (2013) report that oscillations can be volitionally controlled, opening new directions to explore their function and underlying mechanisms.
