A major goal in epilepsy research is to understand the cellular basis of pathological forms of network oscillations, particularly those classified as high-frequency activity. What are the underlying mechanisms, and how do they arise? The topic of this review is the pattern of high-frequency oscillations that have been recorded in epileptic tissue, and how they might differ from physiological activity. We discuss recent experimental and clinical data with a major focus on the diverse sources of extracellular signals and the contribution of different neuronal populations, including GABAergic interneurons and glutamatergic principal cells.
