What is it about?
We report that the phenomenon of explosive synchronization can be observed in a network when the coupling between nodes is biased by their degrees. Moreover, we observe that there is a transition from explosive (first-order) to classical (second-order) synchronization in a branched acyclic system once a cycle emerges in the system.

Why is it important?
The mechanism discovered in this paper may represents a potential way with which a neuronal system can naturally control a switching system between states of explosive and classical synchronization such that it can avoid pathological states like epilepsy or chronic pain.
