The phenomenon of self-referential phase reset in ensembles of interacting fitzhugh–nagumo neurons

Kasatkin Dmitrij Vladimirovich, Institute of Applied Physics of the Russian Academy of Sciences

The phenomenon of self-referential phase reset are investigated in ensembles of interacting FitzHugh–Nagumo neurons with di?erent topology of couplings. It is shown that the reset phase of neurons oscillation is independent of the initial phase and is de?ned by the stimulus parameters. This process does not require direct in?uence on all elements of the ensemble and takes place when stimulus is applied to one of the interacting neurons only. The in?uence of inter-neuron couplings and stimulus parameters on ensemble dynamics and phase reset phenomenon is studied.
