Lower power in frequency bands is the consequence of a desynchronization of the underlying neuronal populations (Pfurtscheller and Lopes da Silva, 1999).
A key characteristic of this desynchronization, they go on to explain, is the disruption of brain waves - patterns of electrical activity that indicate brain cell activity - that would normally coordinate.
"This is a classic, well-studied brain wave response to a sensory input, termed event-related desynchronization, or alpha-ERD," says Shimojo, Gertrude Baltimore Professor of Experimental Psychology and affiliated faculty member of the Tianqiao and Chrissy Chen Institute for Neuroscience at Caltech.
Finally, from our own perspective as researchers, the setup was demanding and stressful, with challenges that were technical (e.g., frequent desynchronization of the local network connecting the 3 computers) and human (e.g., for each session we had to coordinate the agendas of 2 participants and 3 experimenters).
It's known that the cholinergic system in the brain plays an important role in triggering this desynchronization.
Medical sustainment communication must include the brigade S-4, the brigade surgeon, the brigade command sergeant major, and the BSB commander in order to ensure a shared understanding during execution to avoid desynchronization.

The health problems such as disturbance in the quality and quantity of sleep, gastrointestinal disturbances, and other organ system activities is mainly due to circadian desynchronization because of shift rotation.
