The Maturing Brain
Chapter 6 provided an analysis of the essentials of dynamics in the sensory and cognitive processes of the brain. This includes basic studies in the both the human and animal brain, demonstrating that oscillatory activities in the delta, theta, alpha, beta, and gamma bands govern control and communication processes in the brain. Accordingly, these oscillations constitute the “most general transfer functions” of brain function. The Preface proposed one of the guiding themes of the book, which is the introduction of a new Cartesian system with multiple causalities. To achieve this, it is necessary to understand the changes that occur during the maturation processes of the brain.
