One of the goals of systems and computational neuroscience is to understand how information is processed by a single neuron and integrated by a network of neurons. A plausible approach to identifying spatial neighborhoods of the brain that host potential neural...

The cerebrum of mammals spans a vast range of sizes and yet has a very regular structure. The amount of folding of the cortical surface and the proportion of white matter gradually increase with size, but the underlying mechanisms remain elusive. Here, two laws...

A common goal in biological sciences is to model a complex web of connections using a small number of interacting units. We present a general approach for dividing up elements in a spatial map based on their connectivity properties, allowing for the discovery of...

Stimulation protocols for medical devices should be rationally designed. For episodic migraine with aura we outline model-based design strategies towards preventive and acute therapies using stereotactic neuromodulation. To this end, we regard a localized spreading...

Previous theoretical work on consciousness and other punctuated global broadcasts associated with attention states has focused on the evolutionary exaptation of the inevitable crosstalk between related sets of unconscious cognitive modules (UCM). This has invoked...
