Probably, the "oscillation" refers to the signals of eeg/ecog/meg? If this is the case, then the answer is NO, individual neurons in a local network are firing with much higher rate then the frequency of the oscillatory field produced by the network. (Otherwise, the oscillations would look more like a ripples, not like the periodic function.) The exact ...

I find this detail a little confusing when we learn spike-timing-dependent plasticity for example. In the original spike timing dependent plasticity work by Bi and Poo (1998), the focus is best understood as on single spikes at a time. This is because their protocol was to provide repeated stimulations of both pre- and post-synaptic neurons, each ...

Not sure I understand your question correctly. What is it you can't find anywhere? I would comment and ask for clarification, but that requires 50 rep which I don't have in this community. Just tell me if my reply doesn't answer your question and I'll update. There are two basic ways to describe neurons' firing. One is rate-based and the other is ...
