Individual-based models of schooling in fish have demonstrated that, via processes of self-organization, artificial fish may school in the absence of a leader or external stimuli, using local information only. We study for the first time how body size and body form of artificial fish affect school formation in such a model. For a variety of group sizes we(More)
In mammals, circadian rhythms are driven by a pacemaker located in the suprachiasmatic nuclei (SCN) of the anterior hypothalamus. The firing rate of neurons within the SCN exhibits a circadian rhythm. There is evidence that individual neurons within the SCN act as circadian oscillators. Rhythm generation in the SCN was therefore modeled by a system of(More)
