>readout ?

first, i work at the 'level' of global integration, and am discussing stuff
that's decades old, just tying to get a 'framework' for integration

i'm not up on =any= current literature, so understand that my comments are at a
general 'level'.

unless what's being implied is 'single-unit recording', all EEG stuff is

'frequencies' such as you refer to, above, 'just' reflect such averaging. this
is not to say that they are not useful, they are.

it's just that there's a lot of neural topology that must be carried through if
what's in the averaged-stuff that shows up in EEG traces is to become

without anything else, this or that EEG frequency 'just' reflects the 'rates'
at which what are referred to, in my work, as "TD E/I-minimization mechanisms"
function while converging, and when converged, uopn TD E/I-minimized activation

several of the TD E/I-minimization mechanisms function as
topologically-distributed 'escapements'... 'ratchet-pawling' mechanisms. some
of what's recorded in EEGs is correlated with the 'ratcheting' and 'pawling' of
these TD E/I-minimization mechanisms, and reflect the physical reality of the
topologically-distributed "ratchet-pawling's" occurrence.

by doing differential EEG recording, in which the skull wi wired-up, with as
many channels as possible, recording, and then analyzing the EEG trace data
differentially , by selecting different subsets of electrodes, it's possible to
home-in on the functionalities of the various TD E/I-minimization mechanisms,
and the topology of their involvements, including it's extent within the brain.

but, having achieved all of this, there are still 'levels' upon 'levels',
beyond, which require analysis that's masked within EEG's averaging.

in general, response to 'electrostatic' stuff, like getting zapped by a carpet
when one is wearing rubber soled shoes, is anomalous.

nothing in the work i've done 'explains' any other such stuff, but, since =all=
'stimulation' that's received, and acted-upon by our nervous systems, is 'just'
energy, which is transduced into nerual activation by the sensory receptors,
where does one 'draw the line' with respect to what energy-responding can be
ascribed to our nervous systems?

one can go a =long= way beyond the traditionally-acknowledged '5 senses'
because it's easy to demonstrate that our nervous systems are capable of
monitoring the one-way flow of energy from order to disorder that is what's
described by 2nd Thermo (wdb2t), and which applies, rigorously, to all energy
transformations within physical reality.

but, clearly, there's are a lot of unanswered questions in-there, because, if
our nervous systems did not 'discriminate' among various forms of energy,
they'd go 'haywire' when one turned on an incandescent bulb... because more
than visula frequency EM radiation emminates from such. and so forth.

there's definitely the possibility of stuff like this, but it can all be
resolved beyond the 'level' of your example by working differentially, as

nope, there's no 'clock' in our nervous systems, which is some of why they're
so extraordinarily-capable information-processors. what there is, instead of a
'clock' that'd 'dictate' to everything what it 'must' do, when something else
is doing such-and-such, is an overall, spectacularly-powerful,
infinitely-flexible, 'group discipline'... which is what i refer to in my work
as TD E/I-minimization.

it's a bit of a stretch to get-there from where we are in this msg, but it all
stands verified.

the brain is 'different' :-)
