Mesoscopic Brain Dynamics

Liljenström, Hans
Liljenström, Hans (ed.)


Mesoscopicbraindynamicsusually refers to theneuralactivity or dynamics at intermediate scales of thenervous system, at levels between neurons and the entire brain. It is commonly considered to relate to the dynamics of cortical neural networks, typically on the spatial order of a few millimeters to centimeters, and temporally on the order of milliseconds to seconds. It is usually the type of dynamics that can be measured by methods such as ECoG (electrocorticography),EEG(electroencephalography), LFP (local field potentials) orMEG(magnetoencephalography). Indeed, the terminology can be used in relative terms, where “meso” just indicates that the scale of interest is in between the “micro” and the “macro”.
