We consider the phase dynamics of an ensemble of Kuramoto oscillators whose eigenfrequencies are perturbed to model the openness of living systems, and we show that it exhibits time-localized epochs of synchrony. A new quantitative measure is used to show that the model compares well with electroencephalography data recorded from a healthy awake human.
