Description

The organization of biological form and function is a classic problem, cut-crossing disciplines, which include a variety of complex spatiotemporal patterns. Historically, work focussed first into the understanding of self-organization and later attention shifted to scale-free collective fluctuations, many of them shown to correspond to critical phenomena. In that context, I will review our work on critical dynamics across several scales uncovering novel understanding of proteins, mitocondria and brain function.
