Cortical oscillations play a fundamental role in organizing large-scale functional brain networks. Noninvasive brain stimulation with temporally patterned waveforms such as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) and transcranial alternating current stimulation (tACS) have been proposed to modulate these oscillations. Thus, these stimulation(More)
A globally coupled network of ON and OFF cells is studied using neural field theory. ON cells increase their activity when the amplitude of an external stimulus increases, while OFF cells do the opposite given the same stimulus. Theory predicts that, without input, multiple transitions to oscillations can occur depending on feedback delay and the difference(More)
A neural field model with multiple cell-to-cell feedback connections is investigated. Our model incorporates populations of ON and OFF cells, receiving sensory inputs with direct and inverted polarity, respectively. Oscillatory responses to spatially localized stimuli are found to occur via Andronov-Hopf bifurcations of stationary activity. We explore the(More)
Many biomolecular systems depend on orderly sequences of chemical transformations or reactions. Yet, the dynamics of single molecules or small-copy-number molecular systems are significantly stochastic. Here, we propose state sequence analysis--a new approach for predicting or visualizing the behaviour of stochastic molecular systems by computing maximum(More)
Performing accurate movements requires preparation, execution, and monitoring mechanisms. The first two are coded by the motor system, the latter by the sensory system. To provide an adaptive neural basis to overt behaviors, motor and sensory information has to be properly integrated in a reciprocal feedback loop. Abnormalities in this sensory-motor loop(More)
UNLABELLED Rhythmic brain activity plays an important role in neural processing and behavior. Features of these oscillations, including amplitude, phase, and spectrum, can be influenced by internal states (e.g., shifts in arousal, attention or cognitive ability) or external stimulation. Electromagnetic stimulation techniques such as transcranial magnetic(More)
Oscillatory brain activity is believed to play a central role in neural coding. Accumulating evidence shows that features of these oscillations are highly dynamic: power, frequency and phase fluctuate alongside changes in behavior and task demands. The role and mechanism supporting this variability is however poorly understood. We here analyze a network of(More)
In a previous paper [Phys. Rev. Lett. 77, 4158 (1996)], a new correlation measure was introduced that sensitively probes phase space localization properties of eigenstates. It is based on a system's response to varying an external parameter. The measure correlates level velocities with overlap intensities between the eigenstates and some localized state of(More)
Rhythmic activity plays a central role in neural computations and brain functions ranging from homeostasis to attention, as well as in neurological and neuropsychiatric disorders. Despite this pervasiveness, little is known about the mechanisms whereby the frequency and power of oscillatory activity are modulated, and how they reflect the inputs received by(More)
The work discovers a stochastic bifurcation in delayed systems in the presence of both delay and additive noise. To understand this phenomenon we present a stochastic center manifold method to compute a non-delayed stochastic order parameter equation for a scalar delayed system driven by additive uncorrelated noise. The derived order parameter equation(More)
