Time-Delayed Feedback In Neurosystems

February 16, 2009 at 2:00 pm Leave a comment

The influence of time delay in systems of two coupled excitable neurons is studied in the framework of the FitzHugh-Nagumo model.

Time delay can occur in the coupling between neurons or in a self-feedback loop. The stochastic synchronization of instantaneously coupled neurons under the influence of white noise can be deliberately controlled by local time-delayed feedback. By appropriate choice of the delay time synchronization can be either enhanced or suppressed. In delay-coupled neurons, antiphase oscillations can be induced for sufficiently large delay and coupling strength.

The additional application of time-delayed self-feedback leads to complex scenarios of synchronized in-phase or antiphase oscillations, bursting patterns, or amplitude death.

Philosophical Transactions A

Each issue of Philosophical Transactions A is devoted to a specific area of the mathematical, physical and engineering sciences. This area will define a research frontier that is advancing rapidly, often bridging traditional disciplines.

Philosophical Transactions A is essential reading for mathematicians, physicists, engineers and other physical scientists. Find out more about the journal.
