A model for synchronization of coupled Nakano’s chaotic circuits is studied. The Nakano circuit consists of a simple RLC circuit with a switch voltage-depending reset rule which generates a discontinuous dynamics. Thus, the model that we study is a network of identical spiking oscillators with integrate-and-fire dynamics. The coupling between oscillators is linear, but the network is subject to a common regime of reset depending on the global state of the oscillator population. This constitutes… 


Synchrony in networks of coupled non-smooth dynamical systems: Extending the master stability function
The master stability function is a powerful tool for determining synchrony in high-dimensional networks of coupled limit cycle oscillators. In part, this approach relies on the analysis of a
Synchronization and local convergence analysis of networks with dynamic diffusive coupling.
The resulting dynamic coupling strategy is a distributed proportional-integral (PI) or a proportional-derivative (PD) law that is shown to be effective in improving the network synchronization performance, for example, when the dynamics at nodes are nonidentical.

This work studies basic dynamics of a pulse-coupled network (PCN) and gives basic classification of chaos synchronous phenomena and their breakdown patterns, and constructs a large scale ring-type PCN that exhibits interesting grouping phenomena of chaos synchronization patterns.
Adaptation controls synchrony and cluster states of coupled threshold-model neurons.
This work analyzes zero-lag and cluster synchrony of delay-coupled nonsmooth dynamical systems by extending the master stability approach, and applies this to networks of adaptive threshold-model neurons, for which activity-based adaptation controls the stability of cluster states, independent of a specific coupling topology.

Numerical simulations show that mode-locked states can exist for some self-consistently determined common period of repetitive firing of neural oscillators, and the influence of the synaptic current upon the Arnold tongue structure is explored in the regime of weak coupling.
Synchronization of networks of chaotic units with time-delayed couplings.
A network of chaotic units is investigated where the units are coupled by signals with a transmission delay and it is shown that chaotic trajectories cannot be synchronized if the transmission delay is larger than the time scales of the individual units.
Synchronization of Electrically Coupled Resonate-and-Fire Neurons
The phase response curve is calculated using an extension of the adjoint method that accounts for the discontinuous post-spike reset rule and it is found that both spikes and subthreshold fluctuations can jointly promote synchronization.
Synchronization of Electrically Coupled Pairs of Inhibitory Interneurons in Neocortex
Electrical coupling between cortical interneurons of the same type maintained robust synchronous firing of cell pairs for up to ∼10% heterogeneity in their intrinsic frequencies.
Synchrony in networks of Franklin bells
A network of Franklin bells is considered, showing how the master stability function approach can be adapted to treat the linear stability of the synchronous state for arbitrary network topolo-gies and used to determine conditions for network induced instabilities.
