A measure of self-organization in neural activity
Part of the Nonlinear Phenomena and Complex Systems book series (NOPH, volume 9)
We show, using appropriate information tools and EEG data, that an epileptic-focus triggers a self-organized brain state characterized by both order and maximal complexity.
