EEG measurements indicate the presence of common-mode, coherent oscillations in various cortical areas. In previous studies the KIII model has been introduced, which interprets the experimental observation as nonlinear, spatially distributed dynamical oscillations of coupled neural populations. In this paper we combine multiple KIII sets into the KIV model, which approximates the operation of the basic vertebrate forebrain together with the basal ganglia and motor systems. This paper outlines a summary description of the essential components of the KIV model, as the basis for future modeling of their cooperative dynamics guided by analysis of multichannel EEG in animals and humans.
