Metastability and functional integration in anisotropically coupled map lattices


Pitti, A; Lungarella, M; Kuniyoshi, Y (2008). Metastability and functional integration in anisotropically coupled map lattices. European Physical Journal B - Condensed Matter and Complex Systems, 63(2):239-243.

Abstract

Metastability is a property of systems composed of many interacting parts wherein the parts exhibit simultaneously a tendency to function autonomously (local segregation) and a tendency to cooperate (global integration). We study anisotropically coupled map lattices and discover that for specific values of the coupling control parameters the entire system transits to a metastable regime. We show that this regime manifests a quasi-stable state in which the system can flexibly switch to another such state. We
briefly discuss the relevance of our findings for information processing, functional integration, etastability
in the brain, and phase transitions in complex systems.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
