Im  reading around the literature on nerual oscillations given the
current vogue for explaining many aspects of function (binding
problem, consciousness) through them.  However, I'm a little confused
as to what is actually referred to by 'oscillation' (i.e. what is
oscillating?).  Is it the fluctuation of resting membrane potentials
or is it more about the sequential firing of spatially distributed at
certain frequencies.  i.e. given neurons A, B Is the oscillation
A-B-A-B-A-B

Cheers for any explanations or refs to that effect.
