Numerical continuation of travelling waves/pulses in neural field models: During a visit to S. Coombes
(Fall 2011), I have been able to show it is possible and the next challenge is to determine spectral stability in general. Several student projects on applications to epilepsy (B. Kiewiet, J. Hebbink), binocular rivalry (W. Woldman), migraine.
