Abstract--A  two  dimensional  time-dependent  Duffing oscillator
model of macroscopic neocortex exhibits chaos for some ranges  of
parameters.   We  embed  this model in moderate noise, typical of
the context presented in real neocortex, using  PATHINT,  a  non-
Monte-Carlo path-integral algorithm that is particularly adept in
handling nonlinear Fokker-Planck systems.   This  approach  shows
promise  to  investigate whether chaos in neocortex, as predicted
by such models, can survive in noisy contexts.
 
Keywords: chaos, path integral, Fokker Planck, Duffing  equation,
neocortex
