Are neural oscillations asymmetric?

Instead of being a nuisance, we argue that these nonsinusoidal features may contain crucial physiological information about the neural systems and dynamic that generate them

Multiple mechanisms link prestimulus neural oscillations to sensory responses

This study aims to clarify how spontaneous fluctuations of prestimulus brain states, reflected by the power of low-frequency oscillations in the alpha- and beta-bands (8–30 Hz), affect the trial-by-trial variability in the amplitude of sensory event-related potentials (ERPs).
