By means of the autoregressive model the transfer function and the impulse response function were determined and the parameters characterizing electrocortical oscillators were found for the four brain structures of the experimental animals. Different kinds of the representation of these parameters were compared and their sensitivity to the different factors was tested. The advantages of the proposed method over the conventional spectral analysis were demonstrated. Cluster analysis was applied in order to test the stability of the determined basic rhythms. Proposed method seems to be very useful for the investigation of the processes of rhythmical activity generation and control.
