During W states, ECoG showed desynchronized activity and high EMG tonus.
While the radical pace differential is not just between government and business, it is precisely this desynchronized relationship that is driving the disruptive changes we're seeing around us, the most radical of which are happening on a governing level.
The drug has been shown to reset desynchronized circadian rhythms.
Changes in light-dark exposure shift the timing of the circadian system such that internal rhythms can become desynchronized from both the external environment and internally with each other, impairing our ability to sleep and wake at the appropriate times and compromising metabolic processes.
This operational imperative desynchronized the fielded forces with sustaining institutions--logistics, medical, personnel, and training, in particular--needed to maintain readiness.
Any disruption to the flow of information can result in the system becoming desynchronized.
At sleep onset, the occipital EEG activity changes from a highly rhythmic, well-organized alpha rhythm to a lower-amplitude, more desynchronized EEG.
This figure suggests that, reflecting the Balassa-Samuelson hypothesis, the observed inflation differentials could be indicative of a process of the convergence of productivity levels (driving income convergence) across countries as well as asymmetric shocks across countries (and desynchronized business cycles).
Relapsing alcoholics have been reported to have more desynchronized, or randomly firing, beta activity over frontal areas than nonrelapsers, which suggests a functional disturbance in the prefrontal cortex (the area of the brain just behind the forehead) (Winterer et al.

Studies by Wever, in which human biological rhythms were desynchronized when they were shielded from natural electromagnetic fields, corroborate Oschman's mechanisms.
Preliminary research by Elble (1989) reports that as tremor amplitude increases, the number of desynchronized neural pathways decreases.
He suggests that various procedures can induce this neurophysiological change, replacing the normal sympathetic dominance and desynchronized fast-wave activity of the cerebral cortex, with a parasympathetic dominance consisting of cortical synchronization and high-voltage slow-wave EEG activity coming from the hippocampal-septal area (HSHH).
