Physiological origins and functional correlates of EEG rhythmic activities: implications for self-regulation.

Veterans Administration Medical Center, Sepulveda, CA 91343, USA.


Recent neurophysiological findings in relation to thalamocortical mechanisms for sensory processing, together with established anatomical and expanding functional evidence, have provided a rational theoretical framework for the interpretation of normal and abnormal EEG rhythmic activities. This perspective is integrated here with earlier animal studies which were the foundation for many current applications of EEG self-regulation as a clinical tool. Basic evidence concerning the origins, frequency modulation, and functional significance of normal EEG rhythmic activities is reviewed here in an effort to provide guiding principles for the interpretation of clinical abnormalities and their remediation with EEG feedback training.
