Biological neurons are good examples of a threshold device—this is why neural systems are in the focus when looking for realization of Stochastic Resonance (SR) and Spatiotemporal Stochastic Resonance (STSR) phenomena. There are two different ways to simulate neural systems—one based on differential equations, the other based on a simple threshold model. In this talk the effect of noise on neural systems will be discussed using both ways of modelling. The results so far suggest that SR and STSR do occur in models of neural systems. However, how significant is the role played by these phenomena and what implications might they have on neurobiology is still a question. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Neuronal avalanches are a form of spontaneous activity widely observed in cortical slices and other types of nervous tissue, both in vivo and in vitro. They are characterized by irregular, isolated population bursts when many neurons fire together, where the number of spikes per burst obeys a...
