Biocomplexity

Living systems are the paradigm of complex systems, with nonlinear interactions occurring at all spatial and temporal scales, from molecules and genes to the planetary scales defining the global biosphere. One of the focus of our research is the ecological level where we consider modes of organisms’ mobility and their interplay with food search, disease propagation, spatial patterning, and also with the basic ecological interactions such as competition, predation, or mutualism. Another focal issue in our studies is understanding brain function, which requires approaches at scales that range from individual neurons to the whole brain. At the neuronal level, we concentrate on aspects of synchronization between interacting neuronal populations and study how information flows. With the help of statistical measures, we analyze experimental data and compare the results with neuronal models.
