Neural Oscillations in EEG and MEG

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Neural oscillations have emerged as a paradigm of reference for EEG and MEG research. In this chapter, we highlight some the possibilities and limits of modelling the dynamics of complex stimulus perception as being shaped by internal oscillators. The reader is introduced to the main physiological tenets underpinning the use of neural oscillations in cognitive neuroscience. The concepts of entrainment and neural tracking are illustrated with particular reference to speech and language processes.
