Chimera-like dynamics and metastability in the C.elegans brain network
The journal version of this paper is published in Cybernetics And Physics, Vol.4, Is.1, 2015
The brain is an incredibly complex system where the different parts (cortical areas) work together, but each part has its own special properties. Synchronization is important for cognitive functions and takes place at various levels, within and between cortical areas. The topological properties of a brain network and the local neuron dynamics affect synchronization. As a model organism we employ the C.elegans network and focus on the study of chimera-like and metastable states.
