Abstract
We study a system of globally coupled FitzHugh-Nagumo equations as a stochastic resonator. Each unit is either excitatory or inhibitory. If the numbers of units of both types are nearly equal (balanced coupling), we observe the presence of multistable oscillatory states with different excitation or firing rates. In the presence of noise, random transitions between high- and low-frequency oscillatory states are observed and the resultant firing pattern is long-range correlated. Compared to other coupling types, the system demonstrates considerably improved rate-coding ability for both subthreshold and suprathreshold signals, even with a tiny level of noise.
