Oscillatory Dynamics of the Emotional Brain: Links of Emotion to Episodic Memory

  • Erol Başar


Previous chapters have shown how one can approach functional correlates of brain oscillations; that the oscillations in alpha, beta, theta, etc., are dependent on the modality of sensory–cognitive events; that, depending both on topology and input modality, the brain response oscillations react with various ensembles of multiple oscillations. Chaps. 6 and 7 explained that a simple light or auditory signal evoke multiple oscillations selectively distributed in various structures of the brain. Further, even a simple light signal requires phyletic memory. Measurements of short-term memory by means of the oddball paradigm showed that the brain can differentiate a diverse range of tasks and electrophysiological recordings provide an efficient tool to detect differences during various states of the working brain.
