data re Signals in the brain

You will DEFINITELY need to travel to a medical/scientific library to
get the data you are looking for.

Rudolfo Llinas (New York University Medical School) has written
extensively on 40Hz rhythms as binding disparate events (and presented
relevant data)--as has others.

Calcium waves were displayed in visible form on computer or video
screens by several researchers at a poster session at the Society for
Neuroscience meeting in 1996 (probably 1997 also, but I missed it).

Etc., etc.

HOWEVER, howsoever ingenious your ideas may be and howsoever
sophisticated you may be re math and physics of wave activity in the
general sense, it sounds like you are quite naive and un-schooled re
the basics of neurophysiology; so again, I recommend reading a basic
text EARLY in your quest.  Another respondent had a good suggestion re
using web to identify titles, publishers, etc.--as well as consulting a
librarian or visiting a university book store (probably could get used
texts very cheap).
