Control of Chaos in Networks with Delay: A Model for Synchronization of Cortical Tissue
Article PDF (674.49 KB)
Abstract

The unstable periodic orbits of chaotic dynamics in systems described by delay differential equations are considered. An orbit is stabilized successfully, using a method proposed by Pyragas. The system under investigation is a network of excitatory and inhibitory neurons of moderate size, describing cortical activity. The relevance of the results for synchronized cortical activity is discussed.
