SummaryA model that generates synchronised rhythmical activity from autocatalytic behaviour followed by a rest period is presented and discussed with respect to social insects and group-living arthropods.ResumeUn modèle qui génère une activité périodique et synchrone par un comportement autocatalytique suivi d'une période de repos est présenté et discuté pour les insectes sociaux et arthropodes vivant en groupe.
