We study the response of a model neuron, driven simultaneously by noise and at least two weak periodic signals. We focus on signals with frequencies components kf(0),(k+1)f(0),...(k+n)f(0) with k>1. The neuron's output is a sequence of pulses spaced at random interpulse intervals. We find an optimum input noise intensity for which the output pulses are(More)
We report a peculiar case of congenitally restricted sursumduction caused by an anomalous band-like structure within the right orbit which was completely distinct from the extraocular muscles. Imaging (static and dynamic ultrasound studies of the orbit and globe, CT and MRI) revealed the origin of the anomalous structure in Zinn's ring, its intraconal(More)
Toad ventricles were externally driven by periodic pulses while monophasic action potential (MAP) signals were recorded in seven excised and seven in situ ventricles. As the frequency was slowly increased in steps, the stimulated tissue displayed several dynamic characteristics. Hierarchies of periodic behavior, like phase-locking and period-doubling(More)
It is difficult to design electronic nonlinear devices capable of reproducing complex oscillations because of the lack of general constructive rules, and because of stability problems related to the dynamical robustness of the circuits. This is particularly true for current analog electronic circuits that implement mathematical models of bursting and(More)
Visually dependent postural stabilization decreases as a consequence of a long-standing reduction of visual cues in patients affected by congenital nystagmus. The aim of the present study was to verify whether the changes in postural control in this group of patients are due to ocular oscillations or to reduced visual acuity. Therefore, postural control was(More)
The role of vision in postural control is crucial and is strictly related to the characteristics of the visual stimulus and to the performance of the visual system. The purpose of this investigation was to evaluate the effects of chronically reduced visual cues upon postural control in patients affected by Congenital Nystagmus (CN). These patients have(More)
