Abstract
Abstract Neuronal networks, similar to many other complex systems, self-organize into fascinating emergent states that are not only visually compelling, but also vital for the proper functioning of the brain. Synchronous spatiotemporal patterns, for example, play an important role in neuronal communication and plasticity, and in various cognitive processes. Recent research has shown that the coexistence of coherent and incoherent states, known as chimera states or simply chimeras, is particularly important and characteristic for neuronal systems. Chimeras have also been linked to the Parkinson's disease, epileptic seizures, and even to schizophrenia. The emergen...
