Module 10: Figure gamma oscillation phase synchrony

Hippocampal gamma oscillation phase synchrony.

Neurons within the CA3 and CA1 regions of the hippocampus have synchronous gamma oscillations orchestrated by a network of inhibitory interneurons connected through synapses and gap junctions. Action potential (AP) coincidence occurs when individual pyramidal neurons in the regions fire together on the peaks of the gamma oscillations.
