Bifurcation analysis of two coupled Jansen Rit neural mass models

PLoS One
PMCID: 5870965
PMID: 29584728
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0192842

[…] a hyperbolic equilibrium (saddle node) to itself. There is no general method to find and identify a limit cycle; however, it is possible to compute it using the continuation procedure provided in the MATCONT package []. In order to check if the bifurcation is saddle-node homoclinic, the period of oscillation versus the bifurcation parameters is usually plotted (it is depicted for case I with conne […]
