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 New model: statistical mode los spiking
