Ion Concentration Dynamics and Neuronal Excitability; Synchronization in Interacting Populations of OscillatorsMathematical Biology
|Speaker: ||Ernest Barreto, George Mason University, Department of Physics & Astronomy and The Krasnow Insti|

In this two-part talk, I will first discuss the consequences of allowing the ion concentrations in a model neuron to be dynamic variables. Next, I will describe work on interacting populations of oscillators, i.e., "networks of networks". Both parts are motivated by observations of seizure-like activity in experimental models of epilepsy.
