We are reading the paper ‘Is Perception Discrete or Continuous’ by VanRullen and Koch (2003). This paper hypothesizes that the brain uses cross-frequency coupling to produce working memory and sequence production. Cross-frequency coupling has since become a common metric used to analyze EEG and MEG and may provide a valuable tool in understanding and developing models of human adaptation.

Gustavo Deco and colleagues offer insights into the resting-state network that may help us understand how the human brain dynamically interacts with technologies and the environment. For more on their new theoretical framework, see Deco et al (2013).
