Effects of astrocyte on weak signal detection performance of Hodgkin–Huxley neuron

Erkan, Yasemin | Saraç, Zehra | Yılmaz, Ergin

Article | 2019 | Nonlinear Dynamics95 ( 4 ) , pp.3411 - 3421

By virtue of recent developments in brain measurement technology, it is now recognized that information processing in brain includes not only neurons but also astrocytes. For this reason, to illustrate the effects of astrocyte on information processing in neuronal systems, we research the weak signal detection performance of the Hodgkin–Huxley neuron under the effect of astrocyte. It is found that the weak signal detection performance of the neuron exhibits the stochastic resonance phenomenon depending on noise intensity, where the presence of astrocyte with an optimal coupling strength significantly increases the detection performa . . .nce of the neuron when compared the one without astrocyte. The obtained results also reveal that there is an optimal weak signal frequency ensuring the best detection performance. Besides, we show that the colored noise exhibits a better performance than white Gaussian noise on improving the weak signal detection capacity of the neuron; moreover, the weak signal detection performance of the neuron demonstrates a resonance-like dependence on the correlation time of the noise. Finally, we investigate the effects of calcium channel noise. Although the calcium channel noise generally reduces the weak signal detection performance of the neuron, the optimal coupling strength warranting the best detection performance critically depends on its intensity. © 2019, Springer Nature B.V Daha fazlası Daha az

Investigating the performance improvement of HRV Indices in CHF using feature selection methods based on backward elimination and statistical significance

Narin, Ali | İşler, Yalçın | Özer, Mahmut

Article | 2014 | Computers in Biology and Medicine45 ( 1 ) , pp.72 - 79

In this study, the best combination of short-term heart rate variability (HRV) measures was investigated to distinguish 29 patients with congestive heart failure from 54 healthy subjects in the control group. In the analysis performed, wavelet packet transform based frequency-domain measures and several non-linear parameters were used in addition to standard HRV measures. The backward elimination and unpaired statistical analysis methods were used to select the best one among all possible combinations of these measures. Five distinct typical classifiers with different parameters were evaluated in discriminating these two groups usin . . .g the leave-one-out cross validation method. Each algorithm was tested 30 times to determine the repeatability of the results. The results imply that the backward elimination method gives better performance when compared to the statistical significance method in the feature selection stage. The best performance (82.75%, 96.29%, and 91.56% for the sensitivity, specificity, and accuracy) was obtained by using the SVM classifier with 27 selected features including non-linear and wavelet-based measures. © 2013 Elsevier Ltd Daha fazlası Daha az

Frequency-dependent information coding in neurons with stochastic ion channels for subthreshold periodic forcing

Özer, Mahmut

Article | 2006 | Physics Letters, Section A: General, Atomic and Solid State Physics354 ( 4 ) , pp.258 - 263

The channel noise that stems from the stochastic nature of the ion channel has important effects on neuronal dynamics. In this context, we investigate the effect of the sub-threshold periodic current forcing on the regularity and synchronization of neuronal spiking activity by using a stochastic extension of the Hodgkin-Huxley model. We demonstrate that the intrinsic coherence resonance is independent of the forcing frequency for very small patch size while it is dependent on the frequency for larger sizes. We also show that the observed phase locking behavior occurs on the positive phase of the periodic current forcing for a small . . .frequency range while the spikes fire most frequently at negative phase as the frequency is increased. © 2006 Elsevier B.V.

A comparative tool for the validity of rate kinetics in ion channels by Onsager reciprocity theorem

Özer, Mahmut | Provaznik, Ivo

Article | 2005 | JOURNAL OF THEORETICAL BIOLOGY233 ( 2 ) , pp.237 - 243

The precise form of the rate constant functions of ion channels is very crucial for reproducing the electrophysiological behavior. Therefore, how well they account for experimental data plays an important role in the behavior of the model. In this study, we derive kinetic coefficients of activation and inactivation gates in ion channels by Onsager reciprocity theorem for an ensemble of gating particles, and propose that the obtained kinetic coefficients can be used as a comparative tool for the empirical validity of fitted rate constant functions to experimental data. We also illustrate its applicability based on the activation and . . .inactivation kinetics of T-type calcium channel in thalamic relay neurons. We show that the shape of the steady-state curve by itself seems to be a poor indicator of the functional form of the rate functions, but the time constant curves reflect considerable variation depending on the particular form of the rate functions, and that the kinetic coefficients related to the time constants provide a powerful tool to determine the empirical validity of the fitted rate constants.

Comparisons of various pulse shapes for DS-UWB signals over the UWB channel

Öztürk, Ertan | Yılmaz, Ergin

Article | 2009 | Telecommunication Systems42 ( 03.Apr ) , pp.213 - 222

In this paper, we first investigate the power spectral densities (PSD) of bipolar modulated Direct Sequence Ultra Wide Band (DS-UWB) signals using various pulse shapes under the FCC UWB emission mask. Considered pulse shapes are the first five derivatives of the Gauss pulse (p 1 , p 2 , p 3 , p 4 and p 5 ), the first four orthogonal modified Hermite waveforms, and Daubechies wavelets (db-q). It is observed in the PSD results that p 4 and p 5 Gauss pulses, the Daubechies (db-q) for q>4 comply with the FCC UWB rule by selecting proper values for the pulse duration. Then, we derive the pulse shape dependent probability of error expr . . .ession for bipolar DS-UWB signals over the standard UWB channel. The five pulse shapes (p 4 , p 5 , db-5, db-6 and db-7) complying with the FCC emission mask are numerically compared by using the derived probability of error expression over the CM1 model of the Standard UWB channel. Results reveal that the Daubechies have better performance than those of the two Gauss pulses. © 2009 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC Daha fazlası Daha az

Can scale-freeness offset delayed signal detection in neuronal networks?

Uzun, Rukiye | Özer, Mahmut | Perc, Matjaž

Article | 2014 | EPL105 ( 6 ) , pp.213 - 222

First-spike latency following stimulus onset is of significant physiological relevance. Neurons transmit information about their inputs by transforming them into spike trains, and the timing of these spike trains is in turn crucial for effectively encoding that information. Random processes and uncertainty that underly neuronal dynamics have been shown to prolong the time towards the first response in a phenomenon dubbed noise-delayed decay. Here we study whether Hodgkin-Huxley neurons with a tunable intensity of intrinsic noise might have shorter response times to external stimuli just above threshold if placed on a scale-free netw . . .ork. We show that the heterogeneity of the interaction network may indeed eradicate slow responsiveness, but only if the coupling between individual neurons is sufficiently strong. Increasing the average degree also favors a fast response, but it is less effective than increasing the coupling strength. We also show that noise-delayed decay can be offset further by adjusting the frequency of the external signal, as well as by blocking a fraction of voltage-gated sodium or potassium ion channels. For certain conditions, we observe a double peak in the response time depending on the intensity of intrinsic noise, indicating competition between local and global effects on the neuronal dynamics. © Copyright EPLA, 2014 Daha fazlası Daha az

Effects of dynamic synapses on noise-delayed response latency of a single neuron

Uzuntarla, Muhammet | Özer, Mahmut | İleri, Uğur | Çalım, Ali | Torres, Joaquin J.

Article | 2015 | Physical Review E - Statistical, Nonlinear, and Soft Matter Physics92 ( 6 ) , pp.97 - 104

The noise-delayed decay (NDD) phenomenon emerges when the first-spike latency of a periodically forced stochastic neuron exhibits a maximum for a particular range of noise intensity. Here, we investigate the latency response dynamics of a single Hodgkin-Huxley neuron that is subject to both a suprathreshold periodic stimulus and a background activity arriving through dynamic synapses. We study the first-spike latency response as a function of the presynaptic firing rate f. This constitutes a more realistic scenario than previous works, since f provides a suitable biophysically realistic parameter to control the level of activity in . . .actual neural systems. We first report on the emergence of classical NDD behavior as a function of f for the limit of static synapses. Second, we show that when short-term depression and facilitation mechanisms are included at the synapses, different NDD features can be found due to their modulatory effect on synaptic current fluctuations. For example, an intriguing double NDD (DNDD) behavior occurs for different sets of relevant synaptic parameters. Moreover, depending on the balance between synaptic depression and synaptic facilitation, single NDD or DNDD can prevail, in such a way that synaptic facilitation favors the emergence of DNDD whereas synaptic depression favors the existence of single NDD. Here we report the existence of the DNDD effect in the response latency dynamics of a neuron. © 2015 American Physical Society Daha fazlası Daha az

Vibrational resonance in a heterogeneous scale free network of neurons

Uzuntarla, Muhammet | Yılmaz, Ergin | Wagemakers, Alexandre | Özer, Mahmut

Article | 2015 | Communications in Nonlinear Science and Numerical Simulation22 ( 01.Mar ) , pp.367 - 374

Vibrational resonance (VR) is a phenomenon whereby the response of some dynamical systems to a weak low-frequency signal can be maximized with the assistance of an optimal intensity of another high-frequency signal. In this paper, we study the VR in a heterogeneous neural system having a complex network topology. We consider a scale-free network of neurons where the heterogeneity is in the intrinsic excitability of the individual neurons. It is shown that emergence of VR in heterogeneous neuron population requires less energy than a homogeneous population. We also find that electrical coupling strength among neurons plays a key role . . . in determining the weak signal processing capacity of the heterogeneous population. Lastly, we investigate the influence of interneuronal link density on the VR and demonstrate that the energy needed to obtain the resonance grows with the increase in average degree. © 2014 Elsevier B.V Daha fazlası Daha az

Stochastic resonance on Newman-Watts networks of Hodgkin-Huxley neurons with local periodic driving

Özer, Mahmut | Perc, Matjaž | Uzuntarla, Muhammet

Article | 2009 | Physics Letters, Section A: General, Atomic and Solid State Physics373 ( 10 ) , pp.964 - 968

We study the phenomenon of stochastic resonance on Newman-Watts small-world networks consisting of biophysically realistic Hodgkin-Huxley neurons with a tunable intensity of intrinsic noise via voltage-gated ion channels embedded in neuronal membranes. Importantly thereby, the subthreshold periodic driving is introduced to a single neuron of the network, thus acting as a pacemaker trying to impose its rhythm on the whole ensemble. We show that there exists an optimal intensity of intrinsic ion channel noise by which the outreach of the pacemaker extends optimally across the whole network. This stochastic resonance phenomenon can be . . .further amplified via fine-tuning of the small-world network structure, and depends significantly also on the coupling strength among neurons and the driving frequency of the pacemaker. In particular, we demonstrate that the noise-induced transmission of weak localized rhythmic activity peaks when the pacemaker frequency matches the intrinsic frequency of subthreshold oscillations. The implications of our findings for weak signal detection and information propagation across neural networks are discussed. © 2009 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved Daha fazlası Daha az

Saraç, Zehra

Article | 2008 | Optics and Lasers in Engineering46 ( 11 ) , pp.823 - 828

This paper proposes the use of Stockwell transform for the analysis of white-light interferograms. The performance of Stockwell transform is assessed from the statistical parameters obtained by analyzing the simulated and experimental interferograms. Furthermore, the sensitivity of Stockwell transform to sampling, intensity and the phase noises is investigated. Results show that sampling and intensity noises significantly affect the performance of Stockwell transform. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
