This chapter discusses some of the basic features of neuronal circuits underlying the population rhythms that can be generated in very small areas of the cortex from slow waves up to extremely fast oscillations. These rhythms are produced via intrinsic neuronal properties combined with chemical and electrical synaptic connectivity profiles. Multiple concurrently generated cortical rhythms can exhibit various forms of coordination, such as concatenation. After providing an overview of how rhythms are generated in the cortex, the chapter examines features of local cortical circuits that generate rhythms. It also discusses synaptic excitation and synaptic inhibition, gap junctions, and features involved in dynamic coordination in the brain.

Keywords:   neuronal circuits, cortex, cortical rhythms, local cortical circuits, synaptic excitation, synaptic inhibition, gap junctions, dynamic coordination, brain
