Abstract

To study the synchronized oscillations among distant neurons in the visual cortex, we analyzed the synchronization between two modules of pulse neural networks using the phase response function. It was found that the intermodule connections from excitatory to excitatory ensembles tend to stabilize the antiphase synchronization and that the intermodule connections from excitatory to inhibitory ensembles tend to stabilize the in-phase synchronization. It was also found that the intermodule synchronization was more noticeable when the inner-module synchronization was weak.
