The delayed and noisy nervous system: implications for neural control.


Recent advances in the study of delay differential equations draw attention to the potential benefits of the interplay between random perturbations ('noise') and delay in neural control. The phenomena include transient stabilizations of unstable steady states by noise, control of fast movements using time-delayed feedback and the occurrence of long-lived… (More)
