[The dynamics of the high-frequency components of brain electrical activity (up to 200 Hz) during learning reflects the functional mosaic structure of the neocortex].

[Article in Russian]


The study was aimed to reveal frequency ranges of correlated changes of power spectral densities of the brain electrical activity (EA) including the high-frequency components (HFC) in dogs (4 animals) by means of factor analysis technique. Spectral densities of EA in different cortical areas and olfactory bulb were factored. Relationships between the structure of the selected factors both by the parts of the total variance determined by them and their frequency loads suggest the regional and individual EA differences. In the process of learning (elaboration of motor skill of pressing the food-dispenser pedal with a forepaw) the factor organization of the EA became substantially more complicated, mainly, in the HFC-range (40-170 Hz). This was manifested in formation of narrower frequency subbands of the HFC each of which being highly loaded (0.7-0.8) by one of the factors. The evidence obtained by means of the FA was completely verified using original version of cluster analysis.
