Description: 

Scintillating Scotoma is a phenomenon in the visual cortex which may signal the onset of migraine, or may happen for no apparent reason. Initial steps to model this use a stochastic reaction diffusion system. A stochastic version of Turing patterns, called quasi-patterns is introduced. This idea is analogous to oscillations sustained by noise in a stochatic ODE setting.
