The phenomenon of synchronization between two or more areas of the brain coupled asymmetrically is a very relevant topic to understand the mechanisms and functions within the cerebral cortex. The anticipated synchronization (AS) refers to the situation in which the receiving system, called “slave”, synchronizes with the future dynamics of the sender system, typically called “master”. In contrast, the intuitive delayed synchronization (DS) represents exactly the opposite case, and more intuitive case [1,2,3]. In this work we investigate and compare the magnitude of the connection between the networks in the AS and DS within the context of causal information theory using a symbolic formalism of multiple temporal scales. Also this formalism allows us to determine specific dynamical features that are different in this two synchronization scenarios.
