Modeling of a Neural Pattern Generator with Coupled nonlinear Oscillators

  title={Modeling of a Neural Pattern Generator with Coupled nonlinear Oscillators},
  author={John S. Bay and Hooshang Hemami},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Engineering},
A set of van der Pol oscillators is arranged in a network in which each oscillator is coupled to each other oscillator. Through the selection of coupling coefficients, the network is made to appear as a ring and as a chain of coupled oscillators. Each oscillator is provided with amplitude, frequency, and offset parameters which have analytically indeterminable effects on the output waves. These systems are simulated on the digital computer in order to study the amplitude, frequency, offset, and… CONTINUE READING
