more references about oscillations

One of the important things to keep in mind about these oscillations, and one
of the reasons it's so big, is that it was predicted by modellers _before_
being discovered in kitties.

von Der Marlsburg and Schneider (1986, Biol. Cybernetics, 54, 29-40, "A Neural
Cocktail-Party Processor.")  wrote about a hypothesized solution to the 
"binding" problem.  This, or other, von Der Marlsburg is important to 
understanding the excitement behind these oscillations.

Frankly, I find the whole thing a bit hokey, but then "the binding problem" is 
not an unambiguous task for vision (or perception in general).
