Neutral theory and scale-free neural dynamics

15 Mar 2017 Martinello Matteo Hidalgo Jorge di Santo Serena Maritan Amos Plenz Dietmar Muñoz Miguel A.

Avalanches of electrochemical activity in brain networks have been empirically reported to obey scale-invariant behavior --characterized by power-law distributions up to some upper cut-off-- both in vitro and in vivo. Elucidating whether such scaling laws stem from the underlying neural dynamics operating at the edge of a phase transition is a fascinating possibility, as systems poised at criticality have been argued to exhibit a number of important functional advantages...
