1. Aperiodic stochastic resonance (ASR) is a phenomenon wherein the response of a nonlinear system to a weak aperiodic input signal is optimized by the presence of a particular, nonzero level of noise. Our objective was to demonstrate ASR experimentally in mammalian cutaneous mechanoreceptors. 2. Experiments were performed on rat slowly adapting type 1 (SA1) afferents. Each neuron was subjected to a perithreshold aperiodic stimulus plus noise. The variance of the noise was varied between trials… CONTINUE READING
