Abstract The suboesophageal ganglion SOG, which connects to both central and peripheral nerves, is the primary taste-processing center in the Drosophila’s brain. The neural oscillation in this center may be of great research value yet it is rarely reported. This work aims to determine the amount of unique information contained within oscillations of the SOG and describe the variability of these patterns. The approximate entropy ApEn values of the spontaneous membrane potential sMP of SOG neurons were calculated in this paper. The arithmetic mean MA, standard deviation SDA and the coefficient of variation CVA of ApEn were proposed as the three statistical indicators to describe the irregularity and complexity of oscillations. The hierarchical clustering method was used to classify them. As a result, the oscillations in SOG were divided into five categories, including: 1 Continuous spike pattern; 2 Mixed oscillation pattern; 3 Spikelet pattern; 4 Busting pattern and 5 Sparse spike pattern. Steady oscillation state has a low level of irregularity, and vice versa. The dopamine stimulation can distinctly cut down the complexity of the mixed oscillation pattern. The current study provides a quantitative method and some critera on mining the information carried in neural oscillations. View Full-Text
