    More recently, there has been increased evidence for anatomical segregation of processing streams between the cortex and STN, due to the finding of multiple functional subloops distinguished by their frequency, cortical topography, and temporal relationships (31). Oscillations in the Basal Ganglia Four major categories of oscillations in the local field potential (LFP) have been observed in the BG: alpha (7 – 13 Hz), beta (11 – 30 Hz), high gamma ($70 Hz), and very high-frequency oscillations ($300 Hz).
