This chapter focuses on dynamic coordination and how it is achieved, how it is related to cognitive functions and learning processes, and the role of neural oscillations in different frequency bands for dynamic coordination. It also considers modulation of coordination at the systems level and the relation of the mechanisms underlying coordination of behavior and cognition to neuropsychiatric disorders. In addition, the chapter examines dynamic coordination that arises from self-organization, the reduction in dimensionality associated with dynamic coordination, the theory of Coherent Infomax, Dynamic Pattern Theory, how optimization and synchrony are related to dynamic coordination, neural synchrony during human ontogeny, and how coordination contributes to perceptual and motor development. The chapter concludes with a discussion of the role of different frequency bands in sensory processing, attention and awareness, and motor circuits, together with how the prefrontal cortex modulates dynamic coordination.

Keywords:   dynamic coordination, cognitive functions, learning, neural oscillations, frequency bands, behavior, cognition, neuropsychiatric disorders, self-organization, prefrontal cortex
