Research Description

John Robert Cressman’s research has focused on investigating dynamical structures in driven systems with a specific interest in their role in the functions of the brain. Transient but long-lived correlated dynamics underlie innumerable biological processes, from the lifecycle of an organism to conscious thought and social behavior. Transient dynamical structures are also the hallmark of a number of natural phenomena, including tornadoes, hurricanes, gyres, and von Karman vortex streets, simple fluid systems that can support coherent structures.
