-The phenomenon most clearly seen in the 10 Hz band is widely known as "event-related desynchronization" or ERD. This is an unfortunate term, but originates from the 1980's when the first researchers discovered the phenomenon assigned the amplitude change to a change in synchrony between neurons (causing a smaller macroscopic field). Naturally, the oscillation amplitudes can also attenuate because of certain neurons transiently not firing action potentials or firing action potentials at a lower rate.+The phenomenon most clearly seen in the 10 Hz band is widely known as "event-related desynchronization" or ERD.
