This volume of "Progress in Brain Research" documents research
presented at the 26th International Summer School of Brain Research
(Amsterdam, Jun/Jul 2010) and looks at how the oscillations that
characterize brain activity vary between task performance - the EEG
power and performance modulations, rest - the MRI default mode and
other networks, and sleep - the cortical slow oscillations. Studies
over the past decade indicate that the study of these slow
oscillations is essential for our understanding of plasticity,
memory, brain structure from synapse to default mode network,
cognition, consciousness and ultimately for our understanding of
the mechanisms and functions of sleep and vigilance.
Leading authors review the state-of-the-art in their field of
investigation and provide their views and perspectives for future
