Switching dynamics of interacting populations
of spiking neurons

The talk is about the analysis of switching dynamics in a clustered network. Such dynamics are characterized by a transition from one active cluster to another. By introducing a bias the network is artificially pushed in a certain direction. In detail the statistics as well as the temporal dynamics of this network are investigated. With a bifurcation analysis a range of parameters are determined which lead to the desired dynamics. The eigenvalues of the system during the transitions are also examined. To determine whether the network under investigation contains some kind of memory a markov analysis is made. As a result striking differences in the network dynamics between various levels of bias can be observed.
