Chapter 35

Neural Networks as Forest Fires

Stochastic Neurodynamics

The purpose of this chapter is to familiarize you with simulating a stochastic process. We will be modeling a large-scale network of firing neurons through the analogy of forest fires. In the process, you will become more adept at using convolutions and creating movies of neural population dynamics.
