Since the days of Galileo, time has been a fundamental variable in
scientific attempts to understand the natural world. Once the first
recordings of electrical activity in the brain had been made, it
became clear that electrical signals from the brain consist of very
complex temporal patterns. This can now be demonstrated by
recordings at the single unit level and by electroencephalography
(EEG). Time and the Brain explores modern approaches to these
temporal aspects of electrical brain activity. The temporal
structure as revealed from trains of impulses from single nerve
cells and from EEG recordings are discussed in depth together with
an exploration of correlations with behaviour and psychology. The
single cell and EEG approaches often tend to be segregated as the
research occurs in laboratories in different parts of the world. By
bringing together modern information acquired using both methods it
is hoped that they can become better integrated as complimentary
windows on the information processing achieved by the brain.
