Horacio G. Rotstein
NJIT's Horacio G. Rotstein, associate professor in the Department of Mathematical Sciences, along with Tasso Kaper and Mark Kramer of Boston University, recently served as guest editors of a special journal issue focused on rhythms in neurological disease. "Rhythms and Dynamic Transitions in Neurological Disease: Modeling, Computation, and Experiment," which appeared in Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science, brought together scientists from widely disparate fields to assess the features of rhythmic neural activity and the transitions between rhythms in healthy and diseased brains. Oscillations and rhythmic waves are ubiquitous in the nervous system, and are central to neurological disorders such as epilepsy, Parkinson's disease and migraine.
Assistant Professor Casey Diekman, Distinguished Professor Robert Miura and Rotstein contributed to the following articles in this peer-reviewed issue:
