Hidden Dynamics Detected in Neuronal Networks

Neuronal networks in the brain can process information particularly well when they are close to a critical point – or so brain researchers had assumed based on theoretical considerations. However, experimental investigations of brain activity revealed much fewer indicators of such critical states than expected.
