Spatiotemporal dynamics, waves, pattern formation
Pattern generation in visual system hallucinations.
Topics covered in this lesson
- Amari model
- Stability analysis of model
- Flicker hallucinations, other visual hallucinations
- Stationary patterns, stripes, checkerboards
Some familiarity with the electrical properties of neurons, for instance the (longer) introductory lectures in Cellular Mechanisms of Brain Function or the (shorter) tutorial series on Basic mathematics for computational neurosciences. Knowledge of differential equations. Some familiarity with dynamical systems concepts and/or linear algebra (stability, equilibrium, matrices, finding eigenvalues).
The previous lectures in the series.
