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

The inverse stochastic resonance (ISR) phenomenon consists of an unexpected depression in the response of a system under external noise, e.g., as observed in the mean firing rate in some pacemaker neurons subject to moderate values of noise. A possible cause for such unexpected reaction is the occurrence of a bistable regime controlling these neurons dynamics. We here explore theoretically the emergence of ISR in a general bistable model system, and thus determine the specific conditions the potential function driving the dynamics must accomplish. We conclude that such an intriguing, and apparently widely observed, phenomenon ensues . . . in the case of an asymmetric potential function when the high activity minimum state of the system is metastable having a larger basin of attraction than the low activity state which is the global minimum of the system. We then discuss on the relevance of such a picture to understand the ISR features and to predict its appearance in nature. In addition, we report on existence of another intriguing, non-standard stochastic resonance in our model even in the absence of any weak signal input. Depending on the shape of the potential function, this new phenomenon shows up together with ISR precisely within the theoretical framework we present in this paper. © 2019 Elsevier B.V Daha fazlası Daha az
