Master Thesis (2018)
It has been shown that the amplitude of gamma oscillations modulates the phase of theta rhythm in the hippocampus . In this work, we reproduce the single node Neural Mass Model (NMM) proposed in  to study the phase-amplitude coupling and the directionality of the oscillations in the hippocampus. The aim is to determine a particular condition of the model which can reproduce the experimental results obtained in . In addition, a NMM comprised of a given number of nodes has been developed on the basis of the neural mass model proposed in .
