The analysis of previously evolved rhythmic asynchronous random Boolean networks [Biosystems 59 (2001) 185] reveals common topological characteristics indicating that rhythm originates from a circular functional structure. The rhythm generating core of the network has the form of a closed ring which operates as a synchronisation substrate by supporting a travelling wave of state change; the size of the ring corresponds well with the period of oscillation. The remaining nodes in the network are… CONTINUE READING
