Using a simple model with bimodal dynamics, we investigate the intra- and inter-system entrainment of the two different time scales involved in the chaotic oscillations. The transition between mode-locked and mode-unlocked chaos is analyzed for a single system. For coupled oscillators, we demonstrate full and partial synchronization patterns depending on the adjustment between the fast and slow time scales and reveal the embedded structure of the corresponding synchronization regions.
