Ekstrom and Watrous review the role of low frequency oscillatory coupling in cognition.  The propose that different  resonant frequencies within the same networks support movement vs memory related functions.  They provide further evidence and argument for a role for oscillatory coupling in multiplexing of function.  In other words, different frequency coupling can allow the same networks to have different roles by allowing them to communicate different messages to different targets.
