At the Complex Systems & Weinberg Institute Seminar hosted by Erdi and Doering at U. Michigan, I outlined the broad strokes of a research program for Computational Social Neuroscience. By interweaving multiple neurobehavioral systems, social behavior is a compelling paradigm for the science of complexity: it suggests similar dynamical phenomenology at multiple neural, behavioral and social scales that speaks to universal laws of complexity across those scales.

At the Brain Space Initiative Talk Series, I tried to sketch directions for the spatiotemporal analysis of brain imaging data that lies at the crux of microscale concepts of orderly propagation and mesoscale concepts of ensemble synchronization. In lieu of functionally phase-locked brain states, lacking flexibility and adaptability to everchanging demands from external and internal milieu, I explored theories and methods geared toward a metastable brain.(see also on slideshare)(Watch on youtube here)
At FAU’s Physics Colloquium, the audience and I travelled from Huygens’ incidental premises of weakly coupled oscillators to find a contemporary science of coupled dynamical systems in which weak coupling and broken symmetry are enablers of adaptive complexity. Science of the living often fancies an idealization of strong coupling inherited from control theory, but with theoretical and computational models of nonlinear oscillators, Physics is ideally poised to advance our understanding of more subtle and complex ways to Nature’s self-organization.
