The tools of weakly coupled phase oscillator theory have had a profound impact on the neuroscience community, providing insight into a variety of network behaviours ranging from central pattern generation to synchronisation, as well as predicting novel network states such as chimeras. However, there are many instances where this theory is expected to break down, say in the presence of strong coupling, or must be carefully interpreted, as in the presence of stochastic forcing. There are also surprises in the dynamical complexity of the attractors that can robustly appear-for example, heteroclinic network attractors. In this review we present a set of mathematical tools that are suitable for addressing the dynamics of oscillatory neural networks, broadening from a standard phase oscillator perspective to provide a practical framework for further successful applications of mathematics to understanding network dynamics in neuroscience.

Distinct dynamical behavior in Erdos-Rényi networks, regular random networks, ring lattices, and all-to-all neuronal networks Lopes, MA; Goltsev, AV (American Physical Society, 4 February 2019)Neuronal network dynamics depends on network structure. In this paper we study how network topology underpins the emergence of different dynamical behaviors in neuronal networks. In particular, we consider neuronal network ...
Insiders, thresholders and outsiders in West European global justice networks: Network positions and modes of coordination Saunders, Clare (Cambridge University Press (CUP, 1 September 2013)Since the new millennium, scholars have acclaimed a vigorous global justice movement (GJM). Many accounts have stressed the tolerant identities of those involved in this movement, and/or the movement’s horizontal decision-making ...
