Publisher’s description: This volume contains chapter contributions from leading researchers who apply state-space methods, network models, and biophysically-motivated continuum approaches to investigate a range of neuroscientifically relevant problems that include the analysis of non-stationary EEG time-series; network topologies that limit epileptic spreading; saddle-node bifurcations for anesthesia, sleep-cycling, and the wake-sleep switch; prediction of dynamical and noise-induced spatiotemporal instabilities underlying BOLD, alpha- and gamma-band EEG oscillations, gap-junction-moderated Turing structures, and Hopf–Turing interactions leading to cortical waves.
