Abstract

"In this thesis we will look at different types of couplings between oscillators as well as different network topologies. We analyze different dynamical properties of these networks that will allow us to tackle some interesting problems in neuroscience. These dynamical properties can be categorized into two different groups. Those relevant to stationary behavior of the particular dynamical system, such as synchronization between oscillators, and those whose interesting dynamics pertains to tis transient state, we will look at a specific example where understanding transient states of ensembles of neurons can be important for the treatment of Parkinson's disease"--Introduction, leaf [1].
