Contents:
Section 1. Slow oscillations in perspective and in detail -- section 2. Sleep and resting state EEG-profile as heritable endophenotype and during development -- section 3. Phasic events during slow oscillations -- section 4. Thalamocortical and cortico-hippocampal network interactions during slow sleep oscillations -- section 5. Cortical synchronization and travelling of slow oscillations -- section 6. Functional benefits of slow oscillations during sleep -- section 7. Infraslow oscillations in resting state network activity during sleep and wakefulness -- section 8. Infraslow oscillations, consciousness and performance.
Summary: This volume of Progress in Brain Research documents research presented at the 26th International Summer School of Brain Research (Amsterdam, Jun/Jul 2010) and looks at how the oscillations which characterise brain activity vary between task performance - the EEG power and performance modulations, rest - the MRI default mode and other networks, and sleep - the cortical slow oscillations. Studies over the past decade indicate that the study of these slow oscillations is essential for our understanding of plasticity, memory, brain structure from synapse to default mode network, cognition, consciousness and ultimately for our understanding of the mechanisms and functions of sleep and vigilance. Leading authors review the state-of-the-art in their field of investigation, and provide their views and perspectives for future research Chapters are extensively referenced to provide readers with a comprehensive list of resources on the topics covered All chapters include comprehensive background information and are written in a clear form that is also accessible to the non-specialist.
