Oscillator

In technical analysis, a model for finding prices at which a security is overbought and oversold. An oscillator finds two extreme prices using various methods and finds buy signals and sell signals when the price of the security approaches each. One of the most common oscillators is the Stochastic oscillator. See also: Price ceiling, Price floor.

We've provided the first evidence that specifically enhancing alpha oscillations is a causal trigger of a specific and complex behavior -- in this case, creativity.

The feedback synthesis between the parameters of diagnostic system and the oscillation parameters of USM transducer is realised by:
Median coefficients of variation for both measurements were 14% and 15% for interrupter resistance (with a range from 5% to 48%), and 14% and 13% for the oscillation amplitude (with a range from 3% to 36%).

They looked at each of the six components that made up the repair machinery and found that the levels of one of them, the enzyme XPA, rose and fell in synchrony with the oscillations of the circadian clock.
In other words, the EEG oscillations that are measured in a resting state become organized, amplified, and/or coupled during mental activity, or the network activity induced by an event or stimulus may trigger specific oscillatory responses, thus giving rise to an "evoked" (strongly locked to the stimulus/event) or "induced" (weakly associated with to the stimulus/event) rhythmicity (Basar 1980; Basar 1999; Makeig et al.
The overall evidence is that the La Nina has collapsed, despite the Pacific Ocean convergence zone indicating a negative oscillation.
Oscillation Project with Emulsion Tracking Apparatus would indeed be OPETA, as you say, but this is the Oscillation Project with Emulsion-tRacking Apparatus, which is OPERA, and they tracked, or perhaps I should say tRacked the neutrinos and found that.
