The human brain’s capacity for processing information is very limited. This is why it needs to carefully select which information to process or store in memory and which information to suppress. Moreover, many cognitive operations require the brain to sequentially coordinate processing steps. But how does our nervous system achieve a coordinated mind? Here, I will show that slow rhythmical brain activity might contribute to optimal timing and coordination of neural activity patterns distributed across the human neocortex. I will highlight that deployment of cognitive resources across different domains is reflected by these slow oscillatory processes, and that deviation in this mechanism could be one of the reasons for cognitive deficits in some psychiatric conditions.
