Welcome to Mass Action! Our aim is to understand how immense numbers of neurons in brains coordinate to create thought that guides intelligent behavior. We extract patterns from action potentials and electrocorticograms (ECoG) of animals and scalp EEGs of human volunteers. About. A. PSD by the multitaper method showing peaks in theta but not beta or gamma ranges. Long time segments (≥6 sec) give PSD with power-law distributions, which reflects the scale-free dynamics of cerebral cortex (Freeman and Breakspear, ). The Nervous System Functions of the Nervous System 1. Gathers information from both inside and outside the body - Sensory Function 2. Transmits information to the processing areas of the brain and spine 3. Processes the information in the brain and spine – Integration Function Size: 2MB. In neuroscience, the mass action principle suggests that the proportion of the brain that is injured is directly proportional to the decreased ability of memory functions. In other words, memory cannot be localized to a single cortical area, but is instead distributed throughout the cortex. This theory is contrasted by functional is one of two principles that Karl Lashley.

The previous two editions of the Human Nervous System have been the standard reference for the anatomy of the central and peripheral nervous system of the human. The work has attracted nearly 2, citations, demonstrating that it has a major influence in the field of neuroscience.   Freeman's Mass Action (FMA) refers to the collective synaptic actions that neurons in the cortex exert on each other in vast numbers by synchronizing their firing of action potentials. In the aggregate, FMA is a powerful force that creates bursts of cortical neural activity that resemble the vortices of tornadoes and hurricanes. The bursts rapidly and repeatedly retrieve memories and bind them. Get this from a library!
