Developmental rhythms and their long shadow on adult cognition

Synchronization of neuronal activity in oscillatory rhythms is of critical relevance for information processing in the adult cerebral cortex. While these rhythms emerge early in life, their function along development is still poorly understood. The talk will uncover how early oscillations control the (mis)wiring and cognitive behavior in health and psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia and autism.
