Understanding neural variability is currently one of the biggest challenges in neuroscience. Using theory and computational modeling, we study the behavior of a globally coupled inhibitory neural network, in which each neuron follows a purely stochastic two-state spiking process. We investigate the role of both this intrinsic randomness and the conduction(More)
The aim of our study was to use functional magnetic resonance imaging to investigate how spontaneous activity interacts with evoked activity, as well as how the temporal structure of spontaneous activity, that is, long-range temporal correlations, relate to this interaction. Using an extremely sparse event-related design (intertrial intervals: 52-60 s), a(More)
Gamma-band synchronization has been linked to attention and communication between brain regions, yet the underlying dynamical mechanisms are still unclear. How does the timing and amplitude of inputs to cells that generate an endogenously noisy gamma rhythm affect the network activity and rhythm? How does such ”communication through coherence” (CTC) survive(More)
Cortical gamma frequency (30-100 Hz) are known to be associated with many cognitive processes. Understanding the dynamics in the gamma band is crucial in neu-roscience. Stochastic gamma oscillations due to finite size effects were reported using the stochastic Wilson-Cowan model ([1] and [2]). On the other hand, temporal correlation can be induced by(More)
