Problems: the nervous systems lacks a systemwide clock The nervous sytem is built from stochastic elements The brain constantly reprograms itself o the brain is a network network has two components: nodes edges ex: social network, I am a node, edge is friendship diffusion tensor imaging (DTI), structural nodes are region, edges are wires connecting o the brain is a small world network neighborly but with short cuts long path length+clustered short path length+clustered short path length+not clustered many real world networks are small world highly integrated cluster o scalp EEG. o DATA analysis

Use sophisticated computational tools to characterize EEG activity The power spectrum Help us identify important rhythms Many frequency bonds each associated with different functions Maintenance preparation Encoding memory Brain rhythms are epiphenomena Vital: we’re overrun with Data Like a multielectrode array o MODELING Mathematical equations to mimic an observed system Make it simpler Spikes=1, not=0

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
