Recent progress on systems neuroscience suggests functional roles of neural oscillations in perception, cognition and behavior. In this CiNet conference, we invite world-leading researchers utilizing psychological, elecrophysiological and non-invasive brain imaging techniques, and discuss the cutting edge findings and future directions of the researches on neural oscillations.
