Mathematics Reveals New Pattern Of Brain Cell Activity

... The cells bounce back after they are released and pass the signal alongby suppressing other cells. Scientists observed inhibitory signaling amongbrain cells in the past, but assumed it couldn’t produce the smoothwaves that mark synchronous brain activities such as sleep. “We thought an inhib...
