Developmental changes in resting gamma power from age three to adulthood
Tierney, Adam and Strait, D.L. and O'Connell, S. and Kraus, N. (2013) Developmental changes in resting gamma power from age three to adulthood. Clinical Neurophysiology 124 (5), pp. 1040-1042. ISSN 1388-2457.
The brain’s activity at rest changes dramatically as it develops. Resting oscillatory power within delta and theta bands, for example, decreases steadily between childhood and late adolescence (Gasser et al., 1988). Individual differences in resting EEG power have been linked to gray matter volume (Whitford et al., 2007). Thus, decreases in resting EEG power with age may reflect decreases in synaptic density due to synaptic pruning, which have been proposed to be linked to decreasing gray matter volume with age (Whitford et al., 2007).
