In this chapter we study the spontaneous and evoked oscillatory activity of the brain in three age groups. Three important issues are addressed:
  1. (1)

    The utility of single-sweep analysis will be emphasized for the precise and independent description of phase-locking and amplitude enhancement of evoked rhythms versus EEG.

  2. (2)

    The concept of brain response susceptibility will find important support by evaluation of the comparative data (for the hypothesis the reader is referred to Chap. 14).

  3. (3)

    The results of this chapter will also be pertinent for basic and clinical research: It is recommended that data from developmental, aging, or clinical studies be interpreted with a new standard of examination in order to obtain a more reliable evaluation.
