    I find the review clearly written and covering all major aspects. I fully recommend it for publication.

    I have only minor comments:


    The history:

    "The frequency of these oscillations was in the range of 40 Hz and thus differed from the periodic activation induced by the grating and also from the mains..." I assume that "mains" refers to the powerline artifact. If so, I suggest to replace it by "powerline artifact" or "line noise artifact", because otherwise, not all readers might understand what's meant.

    Conclusions:

    "The main effect of the oscillatory modulation of membrane potential is ..." - misses a "the" in front of "membrane potential".

    "By adjusting oscillation frequencies, phase angels ..." - should be "angles".

    "Cortical neurons are highly sensitive coincidence detectors because of a number of specific features such as frequency adaptation of synaptic release, adaptation of postsynaptic receptors and active dendritic conductances." I suggest to add to the list 1) the shortness of the synaptic potentials in vivo, 2) the inverse relation between membrane potential slope and spike threshold (Azouz and Gray).
