Part of the Neuromethods book series (NM, volume 91)


This chapter discusses various aspects of operational architectonics methodology for EEG analysis that have been developed over the course of last 17 years in relation to nonstationarity of brain functioning. At first we detail the peculiarities and evidence for a spatial and temporal nonstationarity in the EEG signal, then we review a theoretical framework that could integrate the existing data with a focus on theoretical advantages provided by an operational architectonics framework, and finally we describe the experimental results related to methodology. In the last part of the chapter we outline the application of OA methodology to clinical, pharmacological, cognitive, and neurophilosophical studies.

Key words

Electroencephalography (EEG) Nonstationarity Spontaneous brain activity Neuronal assemblies Brain operations Operational module (OM) Rapid transitional process (RTP) Operational synchrony (OS) Functional synchrony Operational architectonics (OA)
