Monday 12 Nov 2012: Colloquium: Collective behaviour in neural networks
Antonio Politi - Istituto dei Sistemi Complessi
Harrison 103 15:00-16:00
The simultaneous occurrence of microscopic and macroscopic (collective) dynamics in networks of neuron models will be reviewed. The extensive character (i.e. proportionality of the active degrees of freedom to the network size) of the resulting (chaotic) dynamics will be discussed, as well as the role of the topology.
