One of the pioneers in the mathematical and conceptual study of oscillations was Norbert Wiener, whose book Cybernetics first appeared in 1948. The authors review the type of data, experimental techniques, and computing tools available to Wiener for the study of brain oscillations, and describes some of the vast expansions in data base, techniques, and ideas about function that have occurred since Wiener's time.

Keywords:   experimental technique, conceptual framework, Fourier analysis, cable theory, Hodgkin-Huxley equations
