The phenomenon of self-referential phase reset in ensembles of interacting FitzHugh–Nagumo neurons

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