Groovy new paper from Erin Rich and Joni Wallis.  They tested the relationship between information encoding in high gamma with that in spiking activity of neurons.  They encode similar information but neurons only contribute to a small increase in gamma.  Plus, there are large-scale temporal dynamics that can only be seen in gamma.  In other words, might as well study gamma.
