Life at the edge, complexity and criticality in biological function

The organization of biological form and function is a classic problem, cut-crossing disciplines, which include a variety of complex spatiotemporal patterns. Historically, work focused first into understand self-organization and more recently attention shifted to scale-free collective fluctuations, many of them shown to correspond to critical phenomena. In this lecture we will review our recent work across several scales uncovering novel understanding of proteins, mitochondria and brain function and dynamics.
