Independent dynamics of slow, intermediate, and fast intracranial EEG spectral activities during human memory formation

Abstract

A wide spectrum of brain rhythms are engaged throughout the human cortex in cognitive functions. How the rhythms of various low and high frequencies are spatiotemporally coordinated across the human brain during memory processing is inconclusive. They can either be coordinated together across a wide range of the frequency spectrum or induced in specific bands. We used a large dataset of human intracranial electroencephalography (iEEG) to parse the spatiotemporal dynamics of spectral activities induced during formation of verbal memories. Encoding of words for subsequent free recall activated slow theta, intermediate alpha and beta, and fast gamma frequency power in discrete cortical sites. A majority of the electrode sites recorded activity in only one of these frequencies, except for the visual cortex where spectral power was induced across multiple bands. Each frequency band showed characteristic dynamics of the induced power specific to cortical area and hemisphere. The power of the low, intermediate, and fast activities propagated in distinct spatiotemporal patterns across the visual, temporal and prefrontal cortical areas as the words were presented for encoding. Our results suggest anatomically and temporally distributed spectral activities in the formation of human memory.
