[Alpha- and beta-oscillations of dynamics of the area and weight of receptive fields of cat striate neurons under conditions of classical and combined mapping].

[Article in Russian]


In 22 acute experiments in anesthetized and immobilized adult cats the dynamics of 83 receptive fields (RF) of 47 striate neurons was studied by temporal slices method. Classical mapping revealed wave-like changes in the area and weight of neuronal RFs. Special mathematical analysis showed that such changes represented a sum of a slow non-oscillatory and comparatively fast components. The slow component was a biphasic up and down RF dynamics. In most cases, the oscillation frequencies were within the alpha- and beta- EEG frequency ranges. When the RF center was activated additionally during combined mapping, the oscillations frequencies remained unchanged, but the duration and amplitude of non-oscillatory component substantially decreased. Mechanisms underlying the RF dynamics and its functional significance are discussed.
