We focused our attention on Ca(2+) release from the endoplasmic reticulum through a cluster of inositol(1,4,5)-trisphosphate (IP(3)) receptor channels. The random opening and closing of these receptors introduce stochastic effects that have been observed experimentally. Here, we present a stochastic version of Othmer-Tang model (OTM) for IP(3) receptor(More)
Although there are several reports on ultradian and circadian rhythms in newborns, we found only one report in which infradian periodicities are described for heart-rate measurements in the early stages of human development. Here, we report infradian rhythms in the monthly range in the sleep/wake cycle of four infants studied along 24 consecutive weeks. Our(More)
A fundamental task in developmental biology is to identify the mechanisms which drive morphogenesis. Traditionally pattern formation have been modeled mainly using Turing-type mechanisms, where complex patterns arise by symmetry breaking. However, there is a growing experimental evidence that the influence of signals derived from surrounding tissues can(More)
MOTIVATION The need is to visualize and quantify gene expression spatial patterns. Because of their generality for representation of interaction among several elements, complex networks are used to measure the spatial interactions and adjacencies defined by gene expression patterns. RESULTS Enhanced visualization of spatial interactions between elements(More)
Multiloop delayed negative feedback systems, with each feedback loop having its own characteristic time lag (delay), are used to describe a great variety of systems: optical systems, neural networks, physiological control systems, etc. Previous investigations have shown that if the number of delayed feedback loops is greater than two, the system can exhibit(More)
The neuronal networks in the mammalian cortex are characterized by the coexistence of hierarchy, modularity, short and long range interactions, spatial correlations, and topographical connections. Particularly interesting, the latter type of organization implies special demands on developing systems in order to achieve precise maps preserving spatial(More)
We present a technique for automatic detection of epileptic spikes in electroencephalogram (EEG) recordings. We used a nonlinear modeling method that enables us to detect rapidly and accurately epileptic behavior in the EEG signal. Our approach is illustrated by an application to interictal activity from a patient with focal epilepsy.
A fundamental task in developmental biology is to identify the mechanisms which drive mor-phogenesis. In many cases, pattern formation is driven by the positional information determined by both the gradient of maternal factors and hard-wired mechanisms embedded in the genome. Alternative mechanisms of positional information that contribute to patterning are(More)
We propose a measure of divergence of probability distributions for quantifying the dissimilarity of two chaotic attractors. This measure is defined in terms of a generalized entropy. We illustrate our procedure by considering the effect of additive noise in the well known Hénon attractor. Finally, we show how our approach allows one to detect nonstationary(More)
