A Model of the Generation of Electrocortical Rhythms
The investigation of brain electrical activity is usually approached in one of two ways. In the first approach the methods of analysis of stochastic signals are used to extract the characteristic features of the EEG, without any attempt to elucidate the physiological basis of its generation (Gersh and Yonemoto 1977; Gersh et al. 1977; Bodenstein and Praetorius 1977). In the second approach, models based on the neurophysiological data are created, but very often the results of the modeling are difficult to compare directly with the experimental data and only general features of the EEG are described (Aninos and Zenone 1980; Wilson and Cowan 1973; Zetterberg 1973).
