Outline of the Presentation• Introduction• Stochastic Resonances• Coherence Resonance• The FHN Model• Simulations and Results• Future Plans
Introduction• Noise-induced regularity or coherence resonance and information transmission through stochastic resonances are well known phenomena in nonlinear systems with excitable dynamics.• Coherence, periodic stochastic and aperiodic stochastic resonances have been demonstrated in the FitzHugh Nagumo model through numerical simulation.
Constructive Role of NoiseCoherence Resonance Stochastic Resonance
Input Signal Nonlinear System Output Noise • Noise aids in Signal Transmission • QUESTION : When is the transmission OPTIMUM ??
ANSWER :There is a FINITE OPTIMAL level of noise atwhich the response of the system ismaximum.STOCHASTIC RESONANCE (SR)NOISE is a FRIEND…!!
MECHANISMInput Signal Nonlinear System Output Noise What is it that happens inside the BLUE BOX ??
Let’s try to Understand……WEAK periodic signal Output Noise • Zero Noise ? : Particle oscillates within one well • Finite Noise ? : Particle can jump between the wells
A Pinch of History…. THE ICE AGE !!!!Benzi et al (1981, 1982), C. Nicolis (1982) Why do ice ages recur periodically ?
The SR Explanation• Global climate Double well potential• Small modulation of earths orbital eccentricity Weak periodic forcing• Short term climate fluctuations Noise
First Experimental Verification of SRSchmitt Trigger Device - Fauve and Heslot (1983) Output A cos(ωt) + Dξ(t) Input Signal to Noise ratio maximum at an optimal level of noise
Applications of SRHuge amount of applications throughout a large spectrum offields. About 1000 publications since 1981 till date –• Optics• Biology• Neurology• Psychophysics
An interesting example in Nature Hungry Fish (Predator) Cray Fish having hydrodynamic sensors (Prey)Noise : Underwater turbulencePeriodic force : Water vibrations generated by thepredator’s tailThe Cray fish can detect its predator more easily in thebackground of underwater turbulence.
Noise Nonlinear System Output“Stochastic Resonance without External Periodic Forcing” (Gang et al PRL 1993)
• SR : Response of a bistable system to an external periodic forcing, with noise present.• CR : Coherent motion stimulated by the INTRINSIC dynamics of the system. “It has attracted considerable interest theoretically as well as experimentally, as quite counter-intuitively ORDER ARISES WITH THE AID OF TUNED RANDOMNESS” (D. Das, P. Parmananda, A. Sain, S. Biswas et al PRE 2009)
MECHANISM OF CR Two time scales Activation Time Excursion Time• Time between end of one spike • Decay Time of unstable and beginning of another. state.• Strong dependence on Noise • Much weaker noise Intensity. dependence.• Follows Kramer’s-like formula – (Ta e(ΔV/D2) ) Pikovsky and Kurths et al PRL (1997)
APPLICATIONS OF CR• Neuronal and biological systems.• Chemical models.• Electronic circuits.• Semiconductor lasers.
HOW DO WE MEASURE COHERENCE AND STOCHASTIC RESONANCES ??
COHERENCE RESONANCE• Co-efficient of Variation ( Normalized variance) T Interspike Interval• Power Spectral Density (PSD)• Auto Correlation Function (ACF)• Interspike Interval Histograms• Effective Diffusion Co-efficients (Deff)
STOCHASTIC RESONANCEPeriodic Stochastic Resonance :• Co-efficient of Variation (VN)Aperiodic Stochastic Resonance :• Cross Correlation Coefficient (C0) C0 = <(x1-<x1>t)(x2-<x2>t)>tx1 Time Series of Aperiodic Input Signalx2 Time Series of Noise Induced Output Signal<>t Time Average
The Fitz Hugh Nagumo model, named after Richard FitzHugh(1922–2007) and J. Nagumo et al approximately at the sametime, describes a prototype of an excitable system (e.g., aneuron).If the external stimulus exceeds a certain threshold value, thesystem will exhibit a characteristic excursion in phase space,before the variables relax back to their rest values.This behaviour is typical for spike generations ( shortelevation of membrane voltage ) in a neuron afterstimulation by an external input current.The Fitz Hugh Nagumo model is a simplified version of theHodgkin–Huxley model which models in a detailed manneractivation and deactivation dynamics of a spiking neuron. Theequivalent circuit was suggested by Jin-ichi Nagumo, SuguruArimoto, and Shuji Yoshizawa.
• a, D, ξ are parameters• |a| > 1 Stable focus• |a| < 1 Limit cycle• |a| = 1 Centre• |a| > 2 Stable node• D Amplitude of Gaussian noise ξ(t)• <ξ(t)> = 0 (Random)• <ξ(t)ξ(t’)> = δ(t-t’) (Uncorrelated)
CROSS CORRELATION COEFFICIENT versus NOISE INTENSITY
FUTURE PLANS• To study the response of Fitz Hugh Nagumo system after interaction with noise of fixed intensity, by varying the system parameter.• To study the interaction of Fitz Hugh Nagumo system with noise, by fixing the system parameter on oscillatory side instead of the conventional fixed point side.
