Using Hodgkin–Huxley and isolated subthalamic nucleus (STN) model neurons as examples, we show that electrical high-frequency stimulation (HFS) suppresses sustained neuronal spiking. The mechanism of suppression is explained on the basis of averaged equations derived from the original neuron equations in the limit of high frequencies. We show that for(More)
We investigate the effect of a homogeneous high-frequency stimulation (HFS) on a one-dimensional chain of coupled excitable elements governed by the FitzHugh-Nagumo equations. We eliminate the high-frequency term by the method of averaging and show that the averaged dynamics depends on the parameter A=a/ω equal to the ratio of the amplitude a to the(More)
The act-and-wait control algorithm is proposed to suppress synchrony in globally coupled oscillatory networks in the situation when the simultaneous registration and stimulation of the system is not possible. The algorithm involves the periodic repetition of the registration (wait) and stimulation (act) stages, such that in the first stage the mean field of(More)
