Self Organized Criticality and the Brain

Theta(4-8Hz) amplitude change is proportional to ADHD symptom changes.

Complexity exists in nature, order and disorder. Synchronization emerges from the coupling between individual elements. There needs to be coupling. Increased synchronization leads to more order.1)Complexity and coherency: integrating information in the brain, https://www.researchgate.net/profile/Giulio_Tononi/publication/222493040_Complexity_and_coherency_Integrating_information_in_the_brain/links/0fcfd50ff3a2f562c7000000.pdf

In real-world biological systems, the system self organizes to highest complexity for optimal information procesing and dynamic range.  High criticality corresponds to high correlation over space.

Random walk model can be used as a statistical model for critical dynamics.
