Within living systems functions of the nervous system are not static but rather dynamic processes, exhibiting a well-ordered change of activity and of synergy in time. Such cyclic alterations of the CNS state form certain biological rhythms and oscillations with a great variety of period lengths ranging from milliseconds to months (e.g. cardio-vascular and respiratory 1-minute rhythm [1,2] or circa 90-minute ‘Basic Rest-Activity Cycles’ of the CNS;[3,4]). A survey of such ultraand additional circa-and infra-dian human rhythmicities is given by HILDEBRANDT in this volume.
