It is known [8, 11, 16, 26] that phase locking can entrain frequency information when the leaky integrate-and-fire (IF) model of a neuron is forced by a periodic function. We show that this is still the case when the IF model is made more biologically realistic. We incorporate into our model spike dependent threshold modulation and refractory periods.(More)
This article is concerned with pointwise growth and spreading speeds in systems of parabolic partial differential equations. Several criteria exist for quantifying pointwise growth rates. These include the location in the complex plane of singularities of the pointwise Green's function and pinched double roots of the dispersion relation. The primary aim of(More)
In this article, we analyze traveling waves in a reaction–diffusion-mechanics (RDM) system. The system consists of a modified FitzHugh–Nagumo equation, also known as the Aliev–Panfilov model, coupled bidirectionally with an elasticity equation for a deformable medium. In one direction, contraction and expansion of the elastic medium decreases and increases,(More)
