In the present paper we consider the on-off intermittency phenomena observed in time series of spontaneous paroxysmal activity in rats with genetic absence epilepsy. The method to register and analyze the electroencephalogram with the help of continuous wavelet transform is also suggested.

Method for diagnostics of characteristic patterns of observable time series and its real-time experimental implementation for neurophysiological signals
A method is proposed for analysis and automatic diagnostics of characteristic oscillatory patterns of the electric activity of the brain in real time on the basis of a continuous wavelet
Determining the degree of synchronism for intermittent phase synchronization in human electroencephalography data
It has been established that spike-wave discharges are characterized by a higher degree of synchronism than exists in the regions of background activity of the brain, and a modified method of evaluating zero conditional Lyapunov exponents from time series is proposed.
On-off intermittency of thalamo-cortical neuronal network oscillations in the electroencephalogram of rodents with genetic predisposition to absence epilepsy
Spike-wave discharges are electroencephalographic hallmarks of absence epilepsy. Spike-wave discharges are known to originate from thalamo-cortical neuronal network that normally produces sleep

The deduced theoretical law for distributions of the lengths of laminar phases prescribing the power law with a degree of -2 agrees well with the experimental neurophysiological data.
Estimation of degree of synchronization in epileptic brain
The method for calculation of zero conditional Lyapunov exponent from time series using electroencephalograms of WAG/Rij rats having genetic predisposition to absence-epilepsy has been proposed and the degree of synchronization in epileptic brain has been found.
Intermittency in electric brain activity in the perception of ambiguous images
It was shown that the destruction of alpha rhythm with accompanying generation of high frequency oscillations can serve as a marker of Necker cube recognition process.
Intermittent phase synchronization in human epileptic brain
The degree of intermittent phase synchronization in human epileptic brain is estimated and it is found that the epileptic seizures are characterized by the higher degree of synchronization in comparison with the fields of background activity.
Estimate of the degree of synchronization in the intermittent phase synchronization regime from a time series (model systems and neurophysiological data)

Results evidenced a possibility for early prediction of epileptic seizures based on consideration of EEG statistical properties and revealed extreme events inherent in this pathological spiking activity of WAG/Rij rats with genetic predisposition to absence epilepsy.

Spike-burst and other oscillations in a system composed of two coupled, drastically different elements
Abstract:The dynamics of a system composed of two nonlinearly coupled, drastically different nonlinear and eventually oscillatory elements is studied. The rich variety of attractors of the system is
On the intrinsic time scales involved in synchronization: a data-driven approach.
It is found that motions are captured in a finite number of phase-locked oscillations in the synchronized state distinct phenomena as phase slips, anti-phase or perfect phase locking can be simultaneously observed at specific time scales.

It is demonstrated in numerical experiments that estimators of strength and directionality of coupling between oscillators based on modeling of their phase dynamics are widely applicable and allow reliable characterization of coupling from relatively short time series for different properties of noise, significant phase nonlinearity of the oscillators, and nonvanishing coupling between them.
