Dynamics of a small ensemble of hindmarsh – rose neurons under the action of a pulse train

Zaharov Denis Gennadevich, National Research University "Higher School of Economics"

The influence of a pulse train on the dynamics of unidirectly nonlinearly coupled Hindmarsh-Rose neurons is investigated. The synchronization of the spike-generating neuron by the periodical pulse train is studied. Information and dynamical aspects of burst generation under the action of a pulse train with irregular interpulse intervals are analyzed. It is shown that the backward burst-to-spike transformation by the neuron at rest is possible. Dynamic unreliability during the spike-to-burst transformation is explained qualitatively.
