In this paper, systems formed by networks of simple nonlinear cells are studied. Using lattice models, some of the fundamental features of complex systems such as self-organization and pattern formation are illustrated. In the first part of this work, a lattice of identical Chua's circuit is used to experimentally study its global spatiotemporal dynamics,(More)
Magnetoencephalography (MEG) brain signals are studied using a method for characterizing complex nonlinear dynamics. This approach uses the value of d(infinity) (d-infinite) to characterize the system's asymptotic chaotic behavior. A novel procedure has been developed to extract this parameter from time series when the system's structure and laws are(More)

This approach uses the value of d ∞ (d-infinite) to characterize the system's asymptotic chaotic behavior. A novel procedure was developed to extract this parameter from time series when the system's structure and laws are unknown. The(More)
In this paper different topologies of populations of FitzHugh-Nagumo neurons have been introduced in order to investigate the role played by the noise in the network. Each neuron is subjected to an independent source of noise. In these conditions the behavior of the population depends on the connection among the elements. By analyzing several kinds of(More)
In this paper, we investigate the role of topology on synchronization, a fundamental feature of many technological and biological fields. We study it in Hindmarsh-Rose neural networks, with electrical and chemical synapses, where neurons are placed on a bi-dimensional lattice, folded on a torus, and the synapses are set according to several topologies. In(More)
OBJECTIVES The objective of this paper was to face the complex spatio-temporal dynamics shown by Magnetoencephalography (MEG) data by applying a nonlinear distributed approach for the Blind Sources Separation. The effort was to characterize and differ-entiate the phases of a yogic respiratory exercise used in the treatment of obsessive compulsive disorders.(More)
