Strange Attractors in the Dynamics of Brain Activity

  • Conference paper

Part of the Springer Series in Synergetics book series (SSSYN,volume 31)

Abstract

Mammalian brain is certainly one of the most complex systems encountered in nature. It is made of billions of cells endowed with individual electrical activity and interconnected in a highly intricate network. The cell-cell interaction is characterized by nonlinear dynamics in which time delays must also be considered [1].
