Neurons may synchronize their oscillations to produce signals

The day after effect of brain activation: The brain image at the back presents spontaneous (resting state) patterns before an fMRI-based neurofeedback training session. The front brain image presents spontaneous (resting state) patterns a day after the training session, illustrating the long-term trace of the training

Weizmann Institute scientists discover that spontaneously emerging brain activity patterns preserve traces of previous cognitive activity

Autocorrelation showing the hexagonal grid structures of grid cells

Why does a group of brain cells fire in perfect hexagonal patterns?
