Dante R. Chialvo (born 1956) is a professor at Universidad Nacional de San Martin. Together with Per Bak, they put forward concrete models considering the brain as a critical system. Initial contributions focussed on mathematical ideas of how learning could benefit from criticality. Further work provided experimental evidence for this conjecture both at large and small scale. He was named Fulbright Scholar in 2005 and elected as a Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2007.
