is to understand how patterns of coordinated movement develop, persist, and change.
Biological and non-biological complex systems consist of many interacting parts, providing the capacity of spontaneous pattern formation and self-organization.
The development of coherent macroscopic patterns is of great strategic and theoretical importance. It allows for studying the corresponding low-dimensional dynamics.
Origins of coordination may be reconciled by showing how meaningful information originates from self-organizing processes.
is to integrate behavioral and neural synchronization patterns under biophysical constraints and accommodating environmental factors.
