The influence of network structure on neuronal network dynamics
BMC Neuroscience volume 13, Article number: P79 (2012)
We investigate the influence of network structure on the dynamics of neuronal networks, with a focus on the emergence of synchronous oscillations. Network structure is specified using the framework of second order networks, a network model that captures second order statistics (correlations) among the connections between neurons. We demonstrate that the frequency of a chain motif in the network plays a crucial role in influencing network dynamics, not only modulating the emergence of synchrony but also possibly increasing the range of possible network behaviors.
