Self-regulated critical brain dynamics originate from high frequency-band activity in the MEG.

Stefan Dürschmid, Christoph Reichert, Nike Walter, Hermann Hinrichs, Hans-Jochen Heinze, Frank W Ohl, Giulio Tononi, Matthias Deliano,

Brain function requires the flexible coordination of billions of neurons across multiple scales. This could be achieved by scale-free, critical dynamics balanced at the edge of order and disorder. Criticality has been demonstrated in several, often reduced neurophysiological model systems. In the intact human brain criticality has yet been only ... Read more >>
