[Bursts of high-frequency synchronized electrical activity in the neocortex of dogs during food instrumental learning].

[Article in Russian]


The EEG phenomenon was studied of high-frequency bursts (60-70 Hz, 70-80 mcV) in electrical activity of dog's neocortex (EA, 1-200 Hz) in the process of instrumental conditioning. These bursts of high-frequency oscillations appeared at the generalization state of the conditioned reflex during interstimulus intervals at the background of dominant EA of the lower frequency and voltage (10-40 mcV). Application of the developed by us novel strategy of the primary analysis of EA realizations (in particular, inhomogeneity coefficient) enabled estimation of the amplitude-frequency EA inhomogeneity, namely, high-frequency bursts. The regional peculiarities of the high-frequency bursts were revealed by means of the original technique based on the expansion of EA oscillation into a system of half-waves and construction of distribution maps on the basis of their parameters. The presented data verified our earlier findings obtained using other techniques (FFT analysis and factor analysis). These data testify to differential participation of cortical areas (even those which are close to each other within a distance of 3-5 mm) in the spatio-temporal organization of potentials characteristic for a given learning paradigm.
