  • The sleep cycle modelled as a cortical phase transition

    Steyn-Ross, D. Alistair; Steyn-Ross, Moira L.; Sleigh, James W.; Wilson, Marcus T.; Gillies, Iain-Patrick; Wright, J. J. (SPRINGER, 2005-12)
    We present a mean-field model of the cortex that attempts to describe the gross changes in brain electrical activity for the cycles of natural sleep. We incorporate within the model two major sleep modulatory effects: slow ...
  • What can a mean-field model tell us about the dynamics of the cortex?

    Wilson, Marcus T.; Steyn-Ross, Moira L.; Steyn-Ross, D. Alistair; Sleigh, James W.; Gillies, Iain-Patrick; Hailstone, David J. (Springer, 2010)
    In this chapter we examine the dynamical behavior of a spatially homogeneous two-dimensional model of the cortex that incorporates membrane potential, synaptic flux rates and long- and short-range synaptic input, in two ...
