Noise-induced chimeras in dynamical networks: nonlocally coupled ring versus 2D modular fractal connectivity — •Anna Zakharova, Nikolas Heym, and Eckehard Schöll — Technische Universität Berlin
For a network of coupled neural elements in the excitable regime we show that chimera patterns can be induced by noise. We compare the results for two different network topologies: nonlocal coupling on a ring and 2D modular fractal connectivity, with the latter being relevant for modeling of the brain. In contrast to classical chimeras, occurring in noise-free oscillatory networks, these patterns have features of two phenomena: coherence resonance and chimera states. Therefore, we call them coherence-resonance chimeras . They demonstrate the constructive role of noise and appear for intermediate values of noise intensity. We investigate the impact of time delay on coherence-resonance chimeras and show that time-delayed feedback can be used to control the noise-induced chimera states .
