In the framework of the neural information coding the dynamical behavior of the forced subthreshold FitzHugh-Nagumo model and of its linearized version are compared. We show that for this biophysical model an effective Integrate and Fire system (its linearized version) can be used to describe approximatively some of its properties. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Correlation between neuron activity, a form of noise, is of vital importance for the nervous system to carry out computation. Here we present a concrete example to demonstrate the advantages of correlated neuronal computation. Suppose that a neuron receives two signals masked by random noise....

    We consider a two dimensional array of coupled excitable integrate-and-fire (IF) neurons in the presence of noise and sub-threshold periodic stimulus. Although the single IF-neurons do not phase-lock to the external stimulus, the spatially averaged frequency of the neuronal spikes is...

    It is usually assumed that the propagation of action potentials through neural media requires local excitability. Here we review recent investigations showing that action potentials can also propagate when the medium is locally bistable, provided a fast-slow activator-inhibitor dynamics exists,...

    The brain is constantly in a state of activity, with billions of neurons constantly sending signals, but far from causing problems, the activity actually boosts the brain's processing power. Researchers feel that brain may perform better by optimizing levels of internal noise. If so, it should...

During the past decade, with the advent of multi-electrode recording and improved theoretical...
