Tsallis entropy, neurons development and selected gene expression. Evolution of reversed Tsallis entropy (green triangles) during rat brain development (blue and red). Tsallis entropy is the informational entropy reflecting the internal relation of gene groups at any given day of development and represents the measure of disorder. Reversed entropy is opposite to disorder and represents level of structural and functional organization. High levels of entropy correspond to more versatility of the CGGs expression and lower levels correspond to higher organization of the entire system, the number of neurons (blue), and the number of Golgi-stained cortical neurons with full dendritic arborization (red) follow correlated developmental curves indicating a relationship between calculated entropy and gene-controlled neurons and synapses development events.
