Abstract
Neuronal networks have fluctuating characteristics, unlike the stable characteristics seen in computers. The underlying mechanisms that drive reliable communication among neuronal networks and their ability to perform intelligible tasks remain unknown. Recently, in an attempt to resolve this issue, we showed that stimulated neurons communicate <em>via</em> spikes that propagate temporally, in the form of spike trains. We named this phenomenon “<em>spike wave propagation</em>”. In these previous studies, using neural networks cultured from rat hippocampal neurons, we found that multiple neurons, <em>e.g.</em>, 3 neurons, correlate to identify various spike wave p...
