resonance, again

Jane - 

You may want to do a search, such as: cortex AND oscillatory activity; 
I know there were oobservations described by Ghose and Freeman (UC 
Berkeley) some time back, ~1996 I think.

I don't think it's entirely accurate to say no such phenomena exist.  
Consider what thermal noise really is, e.g., in receptor binding 

-kT ln(kd), where kd is a constant...

Each degree of freedom in the transduction mechanism has an angular 
frequency associated with it.  Resonance is extremely important 
manifestation, but awfully hard to measure.
