U-shaped Relation between Prestimulus Alpha-band and Poststimulus Gamma-band Power in Temporal Tactile Perception in the Human Somatosensory Cortex

Published in: Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience, Volume 30, Issue 4, April 2018, 552-564 Abstract “Neuronal oscillations are a ubiquitous phenomenon in the human nervous system. Alpha-band oscillations (8–12 Hz) have been shown to correlate negatively with attention and performance, whereas gamma-band oscillations (40–150 Hz) correlate positively. Here, we studied the relation between prestimulus alpha-band power and poststimulus gamma-band power in a suprathreshold tactile discrimination task. Participants received two electrical stimuli to their left index finger with different SOAs (0 msec, 100 msec, intermediate SOA, intermediate SOA ± 10 msec). The intermediate SOA was individually determined so that stimulation was bistable, and… Read More
