Recent developments in the analysis of synchronization and directionality of couplings for noisy nonlinear oscillators are being applied to study the complex interactions between cardiac and respiratory oscillations, and brain waves (especially delta and gamma), during anæsthesia. It is found that marked changes occur in the inter‐oscillator interactions during anæsthesia in both rats and humans. These could form a new basis for measurement of depth of anæsthesia. The new EC programme BRACCIA will explore and quantify causal relationships between the oscillatory processes for the different stages of anæsthesia and consciousness.
