Special Session 112: Nonlinear dynamics in neuroscience
We study the formation of some rhythmic states in various 3-cell network motifs of a multifunctional central pattern generator (CPG) via several computational tools. The study is complemented with a detailed analysis of a single leech heart neuron, including bifurcations and Lyapunov exponents, that gives a "roadmap" for the basic neuron. The use of advanded GPU computing technologies is introduced.
