Topographic features of spatial synchronization of sharp changes, or rapid transition processes (RTP), were studied in human EEG recorded from longitudinal and transversal electrode arrays. A new algorithm, the EEG Threshold Scanning, was proposed for the detection of the RTP. Synchronization of the RTP was estimated by Operational Synchrony Index (OSI) based on the difference between the actual and stochastic frequency of RTP coincidence in a pair of EEG channels. The relationship between the OSI and interelectrode distance was not monotonous. The OSI depended also on the extent of morpho-functional similarity between two cortical areas. Similar results were obtained for crosscorrelation calculated for the same pairs of the EEG derivations. The existence of dynamic spatial modules which incorporate different brain areas by complementary stabilization of their functional states is discussed.
