J. Marro, J.J. Torres and J.M. Cortes. Networks with Heterogeneously Weighted Connections and Partial Synchronization of Nodes. Computer Physics Communications 177: 180-183, 2007 [pdf]
A network of stochastic nodes in which connections are heterogeneously weighted and dynamics may by varied from single-node updating to full synchronization as in familiar cellular automata is studied concerning computational strategies and states of attention in the brain.
