In this paper, synchronization among the mercury beating heart (MBH) oscillators is studied. In the first set of experiments, two MBH oscillators were taken. Frequency of one oscillator is kept constant and that of the other is increased monotonically. These were then coupled using bidirectional and unidirectional coupling mechanisms separately. Dependence of synchronization on the frequency difference between the two oscillators is investigated. For the second set of experiments involving unidirectional coupling, an ensemble of fifteen oscillators was taken and different configurations of these oscillators were considered. These include an all-to-all network and fractionally distributed master slave configurations. The effect of both the extent of coupling and network configuration on synchronization among these oscillators was investigated.
