I have a list of some 80 references on chaotic dynamics relative to
neurobiology and neural networks.  These references come from my 
PhD thesis, and they cover the litterature up to March 1992.
If you are interested in obtaining this list of references, please
contact me.

We have also worked since 1985 on the analysis of the occurrence of chaos
in human EEG signals using nonlinear dynamics techniques.  We have proposed
a network model of the thalamo-cortical system which accounts for these
nonlinear properties of EEG during synchronized states, such as delta waves 
(sleep stage IV).

If you would like to have more information, a copy of the list of references
or reprints, please contact me directly at:
