We investigated bifurcation mechanisms of oscillatory dynamics of interacting chemically excitable cells (astrocytes). In model of three interacting astrocytes we studied bifurcation transitions leading to generation of calcium oscillations induced by the intercellular diffusion. We analyzed basic mechanisms of limit cycle instabilities and destructions, typical transitions to chaotic oscillations and basic properties of intercellular synchronization.
