Abstract : "In this contribution we present the activation of neuronal ensembles of Hindmarsh-Rose neurons by
controlled synchronization. The main problem consists in to impose a particular spiking-bursting behavior in all
the neurons of the network. We consider a network where the neurons are in its resting state, it is desired that the
neurons change their resting state to a particular behavior of activation, dictated by a neuron called the reference
neuron. The goal is reached by controlling some neurons in the network controlling only the membrane potential
(electrical synapse). The key feature of the present contribution is that by controlling a small number of neurons
in the network a desired behavior is induced in all the neurons in the network despite its network topology. The
important parameters are the control gain and the coupling strength, thus the activation of the network lays down
on a compromise between the control gain and the coupling strength."
