Fractal Structure and Entropy Production within the Central Nervous System

  title={Fractal Structure and Entropy Production within the Central Nervous System},
  author={Andrew J. E. Seely and Kimberley D. Newman and Christophe L. Herry},
Our goal is to explore the relationship between two traditionally unrelated concepts, fractal structure and entropy production, evaluating both within the central nervous system (CNS). Fractals are temporal or spatial structures with self-similarity across scales of measurement; whereas entropy production represents the necessary exportation of entropy to our environment that comes with metabolism and life. Fractals may be measured by their fractal dimension; and human entropy production may be… CONTINUE READING
