[Emotionality and spatio-temporal organization of momentary EEG potentials].

[Article in Russian]

Abstract

With the aim to reveal features of the neocortical spatiotemporal organization of potentials characteristic of different genetically predetermined emotional levels, momentary values of EEG potentials were analyzed in inbred rats of MR and MNRA strains. A topogram was described by a basic parameter such as its general level (the mean of momentary values of potentials derived from 24 symmetrical electrodes bilaterally implanted into the brain cortex) and a similarity coefficient (correlation between the set of its momentary values and that of a standard topogram). The general level and similarity coefficient values were calculated for a series of successive topograms individually for the right and left hemisphere. Also, right- and left-side power spectra of these series were calculated. In rats of MR strain, significant (p < 0.05) peaks in the general level and similarity coefficient spectra were observed in the delta (2.0 Hz), teta (6.5 Hz) and alpha (9 Hz) frequency bands. In this strain, the general level power was higher at the right side, and the similarity coefficient power displayed the left-side dominance. In rats of MNRA strain, peaks in the delta(2.0 Hz) band coinsided in the general level and similarity coefficient spectra, whereas, independently, the general level spectra had peaks in the theta band (7.0 Hz), and similarity coefficient had peaks at frequencies 3.0, 4.5, and 6.0 Hz. The left-side general level spectral power was higher than the right-side general level spectral power in the delta and lower in the high-frequency theta bands. The similarity coefficient power displayed the left-side dominance for the peaks in the delta (2.0 Hz) and theta (3.0 Hz) bands, and it displayed the right-side dominance for the peaks in the theta (4.5 Hz) band. The specific features of the cortical spatiotemporal organization of potentials revealed in rats of MR and MNRA strains suggest different modes of functioning of at least two systems, reticulo-thalamo-corticaland hippocampo-cortical.
