Normal and Epileptic Synchronization at the Cortical Level in the Animal

  • J. Scherrer
  • J. Calvet

Abstract

Synchronization is a descriptive rather than an operative term. It relates to the extent to which a population, or populations, of nervous elements are simultaneously active or silent without prejudice to any particular mechanism.
