Transylvanian Experimental Neuroscience Summer School

The institute will organize in June 2012 this summer school, which will concentrate top-level international expertise to teach a dozen students techniques and concepts in experimental systems neuroscience. Lectures and lab sessions will focus on modern optical and electrophysiological methods to study the connectivity and function of neuronal circuits.

Finding attractors of continuous-time systems by parameter switching

RIST’s Marius F. Danca has found that if the control parameter p, of a continuous-time nonlinear system belonging to a large class of systems, is switched within a set of chosen values in a deterministic or even random manner, while the underlying model is numerically integrated, the obtained attractor is a numerical approximation of one of the existing attractors of the considered system.
