The brain's neurons are organized into strongly connected modules that contribute to similar functions. This modular organization can be observed at different spatial scales and is crucial for high-level brain functions such as perception, cognition, and action. Efficient communication between functionally specialized areas is necessary for the integration of information that is hierarchically processed by local modules. Brain oscillations play a vital role in facilitating this communication by amplifying signals from source areas and modulating the excitability of target areas. In this talk, I will briefly review how brain oscillations affect communication and information processing in the brain, and how theoretical and computational studies can help us understand the role of oscillations in brain functions in both health and disease.
