Temporal decorrelation of collective oscillations in neural networks with local inhibition and long-range excitation.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

We consider two neuronal networks coupled by long-range excitatory interactions. Oscillations in the gamma frequency band are generated within each network by local inhibition. When long-range excitation is weak, these oscillations phase lock with a phase shift dependent on the strength of local inhibition. Increasing the strength of long-range excitation induces a transition to chaos via period doubling or quasiperiodic scenarios. In the chaotic regime, oscillatory activity undergoes fast temporal decorrelation. The generality of these dynamical properties is assessed in firing-rate models as well as in large networks of conductance-based neurons.
