Traub et al (1996) reported that the brain would coherently oscillate within
two milliseconds after a doublet spike that allows synchronous neuronal
oscillations in the 30-70 hertz range. The coherent synchronous oscillation
will occur over large distance. Oscillations slower that 30-hertz will cause
the system to become discoherent.

oscillations in the cortex. Nature 382, 621-624
