The Effect of Signaling Latencies and Node Refractory States on the Dynamics of Networks [article]

Gabriel A. Silva
2019 arXiv   pre-print
When a mismatch between signal arrival times and the internal states of activated nodes occurs, it can cause a break down in the signaling dynamics of the network.  ...  The framework describes the dynamics between the offset in the latencies of propagating signals, which reflect the geometry of the edges and conduction velocities, and the internal refractory dynamics  ...  This work was supported by grants 63795EGII and N00014-15-1-2779 from the Army Research Office (ARO), United States Department of Defense, and in part from unrestricted funds to the Center for Engineered  ...

The prevalence of small world networks explained by modeling the competing dynamics of local signaling events in geometric networks [article]

Gabriel A. Silva
2017 arXiv   pre-print
We define a ratio between the signaling latencies on the edges of the network and the internal time it takes individual nodes to process incoming signals.  ...  A number of methods, including some from our own group, have explored how one goes about computing or predicting the dynamics of networks given information about internal models of individual nodes and  ...  The critical interplay between the latencies and timing of the signaling dynamics on the input edges and the evolving refractory state of v j explicitly determine the running summation towards threshold  ...

Control of Synchronization Patterns in Neural-like Boolean Networks

David P. Rosin, Damien Rontani, Daniel J. Gauthier, Eckehard Schöll
2013 Physical Review Letters  
We observe a transition in the network dynamics when the refractory time of the individual systems is adjusted.  ...  When the refractory time is on the same order-of-magnitude as the mean link time delays or the heterogeneities of the link time delays, cluster synchronization patterns change, or are suppressed entirely  ...  The influence of the refractory time on the network dynamics is most prominent at the nodes with high in degree.  ...

Understanding the Human Brain using Brain Organoids and a Structure-Function Theory [article]

Gabriel A Silva, Alysson R Muotri, Christopher White
2020 bioRxiv   pre-print
Physical constraints imposed on the brain can guide the analyses an interpretation of experimental data and the construction of mathematical models that attempt to make sense of how the brain works and  ...  Moreover, we show these constraints appear in canonical and novel math models of neural activity and learning, and we make the case that constraint-based modeling and use of representations can bridge  ...  A key result from considerations of the interplay between network geometry and dynamics is the refraction ratio -the ratio between the refractory period and effective latencies.  ...

Micro-lasers for neuromorphic computing

Venkata Anirudh Pammi, Sylvain Barbay
2020 Photoniques  
This article reviews some of the latest advances in this field using single and coupled semiconductor excitable micro-lasers.  ...  Optical spike-based computing offers speed and parallelism of optical technologies combined with a sparse way of representing information in spikes, thus with a potential for efficient brain-inspired computing  ...  But one of the neighbours is inevitably in its refractory period and does not respond to this spike whereas the other node does.  ...

Learning without gradient descent encoded by the dynamics of a neurobiological model [article]

Vivek Kurien George, Vikash Morar, Weiwei Yang, Jonathan Larson, Bryan Tower, Shweti Mahajan, Arkin Gupta, Christopher White, Gabriel A. Silva
2021 arXiv   pre-print
We show that MNIST images can be uniquely encoded and classified by the dynamics of geometric networks with nearly state-of-the-art accuracy in an unsupervised way, and without the need for any training  ...  The success of state-of-the-art machine learning is essentially all based on different variations of gradient descent algorithms that minimize some version of a cost or loss function.  ...  and node refractory states) allow information (inputs) to be encoded by the resultant dynamics of the network.  ...
