Synchronization of neurons remains a topic of great interest due in part to practical implications of relevance to desirable as well as to undesirable states. Neural synchrony can be related, for instance, to healthy activity as in the case of the various stages of sleep , but can also be related to pathological processes as in the case of Parkinson’s disease . Even though the enormous scientific and technological advances we have been witnessing over the past years helping us understand better the mechanisms behind neurological activities, there is still much to learn, in a context where mathematical models are potentially capable of making important contributions.
