Local synchronization, both prolonged and transient, of oscillatory neuronal behavior in cortical networks plays a fundamental role in many aspects of perception and cognition. Here we study networks of Hindmarsh-Rose neurons with a new type of adaptive coupling, and show that these networks naturally produce both permanent and transient synchronization of local clusters of neurons. These deterministic systems exhibit complex dynamics with 1/fη power spectra, which appears to be a consequence…

This work introduces a methodology for studying synchronization in adaptive networks with heterogeneous plasticity (adaptation) rules and explains mechanisms leading to synchronization or desynchronization by enhanced long-range connections in nonlocally coupled ring networks and networks with Gaussian distance-dependent coupling weights equipped with a biologically motivated plasticity rule.
Synchronization in Networks With Heterogeneous Adaptation Rules and Applications to Distance-Dependent Synaptic Plasticity
This work introduces a methodology for studying synchronization in adaptive networks with heterogeneous plasticity (adaptation) rules. As a paradigmatic model, we consider a network of adaptively
What adaptive neuronal networks teach us about power grids.
It is proved that phase oscillator models with inertia can be viewed as a particular class of adaptive networks, and the phenomenon of cascading line failure in power grids is translated into an adaptive neuronal network.
Amplification of explosive width in complex networks.
An adaptive coupling strategy to induce hysteresis/explosive synchronization in complex networks of phase oscillators (Sakaguchi-Kuramoto model) and a semi-analytical formalism which can accurately predict the backward transition of the synchronization order parameter is developed.
Gap junction plasticity as a mechanism to regulate network-wide oscillations
It is shown that gap junction plasticity can serve as a homeostatic mechanism for oscillations by maintaining a tight balance between two network states: asynchronous irregular activity and synchronized oscillations.
Interlayer synchronization in time-varying Kuramoto-Sakaguchi networks
We investigate the abrupt transition from low interlayer synchrony to high interlayer synchrony in a system of two identical layers of non-locally coupled Kuramoto-Sakaguchi oscillators using

In this chapter, we analyze multicluster states in a network of adaptively coupled phase oscillators. Multicluster states are composed of several one-clusters with distinct frequencies. Starting from

Designing pinning network controllability for interdependent dynamical networks
Benefiting from impulsive control theory, sufficient conditions are obtained to ensure the globally exponentially stability criteria and the residual dynamics are satisfied to be exponentially converged as well as controllability guaranteed.


Synchronization of bursting neurons: what matters in the network topology.
We study the influence of coupling strength and network topology on synchronization behavior in pulse-coupled networks of bursting Hindmarsh-Rose neurons. Surprisingly, we find that the stability of
Effect of synaptic plasticity on the structure and dynamics of disordered networks of coupled neurons.
The emergent effective flow of directed connections introduces the high-frequency neurons as the more influential elements in the network and facilitates synchronization by decreasing the synaptic cost for onset of synchronization.
A review for dynamics of collective behaviors of network of neurons
The nervous system is composed of a large number of neurons, and the electrical activities of neurons can present multiple modes during the signal transmission between neurons by changing intrinsic
Stimulus-dependent synchronization in delayed-coupled neuronal networks
It is shown that delayed coupled neuronal networks support transitions between synchronous and asynchronous states when the level of input to the network changes, and synchronizing connections lead to synchronous dynamics, whereas desynchronizing connections leads to out-of-phase oscillations in network motifs and to frustrated states with asynchronous dynamics in large networks.
Transitions to synchrony in coupled bursting neurons.
The results suggest that synchronization of spike-burst activity is a multi-time-scale phenomenon and burst synchrony is a precursor to spike synchrony.
Multistability in the Kuramoto model with synaptic plasticity.
It is shown that multistability can occur only for asymmetric STDP, and how the coexistence of synchronization and desynchronization and clustering depends on the distribution of the eigenfrequencies is studied.

The results on synchronization of spiking networks are general of nature and will aid in the development of minimal models of neuronal populations, the building blocks of large scale brain networks relevant for cognitive processing.
Neuronal Avalanches in Neocortical Circuits
This work shows that propagation of spontaneous activity in cortical networks is described by equations that govern avalanches, and suggests that “neuronal avalanches” may be a generic property of cortical networks, and represent a mode of activity that differs profoundly from oscillatory, synchronized, or wave-like network states.
The frustrated brain: from dynamics on motifs to communities and networks
It is hypothesized that the dialectic influences of resonance versus frustration may form a dynamic substrate for flexible neuronal integration, an essential platform across diverse cognitive processes, and the variability of synchronization patterns depends on the inter-node time delay, increases with the network size and is maximized for intermediate coupling strengths.
