Special Note: More current information may be available at Plan-it Purple

I will talk about an IGERT-project of my former student Alex Roxin that arose from an IGERT-class Sara Solla and I taught on networked dynamical elements. In the absence of any input many neurons are excitable rather than oscillatory. Coupled together they can support the propagation of excitation waves. They typically annihilate upon collisions and in a network with purely local coupling activity does not persist. We introduce non-local
