BBC Pink Noise quote?

Postby molecular » Thu Mar 28, 2013 8:55 am

From a wee "info box" on a bbc story about open offices.

"Researchers believe that our neurons pulse at a rate roughly equivalent to pink noise"

Does anyone know what this means / is supposed to mean? If pink noise contains all frequencies, it doesn't really make any sense to me at face value...

One of those quotes where if you asked the author what they meant, they wouldn't have a clue.

Neural analysis does seem to have some connection with white noise...

...mind you, Google could connect elephants with the kama sutra.
