In most cases tendency to synchrony in networks of oscillatory units increases with the coupling strength. Using the popular Hindmarsh-Rose neuronal model, we demonstrate that even for identical neurons and simple coupling the dynamics can be more complicated. Our numerical analysis for globally coupled systems and oscillator lattices reveals a new scenario of synchrony breaking with the increase of coupling, resulting in a quasiperiodic, modulated synchronous state.
