    • Abstract


      In this paper we consider the Bonhoeffer-van der Pol (BVP) equation which describes propagation of nerve pulses in a neural membrane, and characterize the chaotic attractor at various bifurcations, and the probability distribution associated with weak and strong chaos. We illustrate control of chaos in the BVP equation by the Ott-Grebogi-Yorke method as well as through a periodic instantaneous burst.
