This chapter describes the phase synchrony analysis in electoencephalography or magnetoencephalography data. It defines synchronization generally to be the adjustment of rhythms of self-sustained oscillating systems caused by their interaction. The chapter deals with the most-used techniques for assessing synchronization among brain regions which are distant from one another, and suggests that long-distance synchronization of human brain rhythms serves to functionally integrate distant neural populations into large-scale networks. The analysis of phase locking specializes functional connectivity to a particular form which is independent of oscillatory amplitude, namely that of oscillatory synchronization.

Keywords:   phase synchrony analysis, electoencephalography, magnetoencephalography, human brain, phase locking, oscillatory synchronization
