Complex Synchronization in Neuroscience

10:00 AM-12:00 PM
Room: Ballroom II

Synchronization phenomena in neuroscience are of great current interest particularly for information processing in nervous systems and neurological diseases. The speakers will present new achievements in the understanding of synchronization processes by means of nonlinear dynamics and an approach based on phenomena of hidden phase synchronization recently found in weakly coupled chaotic systems. They will discuss new techniques for the reliable identification of complex synchronization from bi- and multivariate noisy data and to apply this concept to neurophysiological measurements. They will also describe work on complex spatio-temporal dynamics of neural systems.
