Synchrony of neural oscillators induced by random telegraphic currents.

Abstract

When a neuron receives a randomly fluctuating input current, its reliability of spike generation improves compared with the case of a constant input current [Mainen and Sejnowski, Science 268, 1503 (1995)]. This phenomenon can be interpreted as phase synchronization between uncoupled nonlinear oscillators subject to a common external input. We analyze this… (More)
