Study sheds light on patterns behind brain, heart systems; circadian rhythms

Related images(click to enlarge) An electrical and systems engineer at Washington University in St. Louis has designed a method that, figuratively, forces a leopard to change its spots. Jr-Shin Li, the Das Family Distinguished Career Development Associate Professor in Electrical Systems Engineering in the School of Engineering Applied Science, has devised a unified mathematical framework to design a single, global input, or waveform, that is able to inspire a population of nonlinear, rhythmic units ubiquitous in nature and manmade systems. The theory has been shown on a nickel multi-electrode array (the leopard) to form first one pattern, the letter O, then a short while later switches to another pattern, the letter K, and then returns to the initial pattern O again. Each pixel in the letter is a chemical reaction. The significance of the study is the contribution to advance the ensemble control theory with the development of effective computational algorithms, that will enable researchers …
