Living Systems Mathematics

Featured Research (Jen Creaser)

Jen Creaser uses dynamcal system theory and numerical simulations to explore how changes in network structure and intrinstic node properties affect the emergent dynamics of entire networks. She uses this framework to make connections from mathematical theory to applications in neuroscience including epilepsy. Here she discusses the so-called domino effect in the onset of epileptic seizures:
