Abstract
This work addresses the complexity of neuronal interactions, the nature of this complexity and how it can be characterised in real neurophysiological processes. A measure of complexity has been introduced recently (Tononi et al. [1994]: Proc Natl Acad Sci USA 91:5033–5037) that is sensitive to the joint constraints imposed by two principles of brain organisation: functional segregation and functional integration. Functional segregation implies that the dynamics of a cortical area should reflect the multidimensional attributes for which that area is specialised (in other words, regional dynamics should show a relatively high entropy). Conversely, functional integ...
