Scaling Brain Size, Keeping Timing Evolutionary Preservation of Brain Rhythms


The most interesting fact presented is that brain oscillatory frequencies are preserved among different brain sizes of different species.

They propose some mechanisms to achieve that but they are totally unsure of that (for not no speak about its motivation)

" Unfortunately, the rules and principles that allow for the preservation of temporal scales in brains of different sizes and complexity are largely unknown. Currently, only limited information is available about how long-range wiring and a selective increase of axons with larger calibers can contribute to the constancy of rhythms."

It must be considered that maybe this have the goal to resonate with the earth endogenous electromagnetic frequencies (Schumann resonances and geomagnetic pulsations) [1][2].

As a curiosity if we hypothesize the earth electrical activity as an activity of a giant brain we can also see that has congruent scale-invariant properties when are compared to human brain [3].
