Neurodynamics is an area of research in the
cognitive sciences which places a strong focus upon the spatio-temporal (dynamic) character of neural activity in describing brainfunction. Neurodynamics reflects a contemporary theoretical neurobiologywhich has embraced recent advances in nonlinear dynamics, complexity theoryand statistical physics. Neurodynamics is often contrasted with the popular computational and modular approaches of cognitive neuroscience.
The term neurodynamics dates back before the 1940s.ref|burrow The field of study "neurodynamics", also called
Neural Field Theory, is an offshoot of neuro cybernetics, which uses differential equationsto describe activity patterns in bulk neural matter. Research for neurodynamics involves the interdisciplinary areas of Statistics and nonlinear physicsand sensory neurobiology. On the physicsside, topics of interest include information measures, oscillators, stochastic resonance, unstable periodic orbits, and pattern formation in ensemblesof .
