Abstract

Noise plays important roles in the nervous system. It enhances detection of weak signals and processing of information. Performance of the neuronal model changes with the noise level; at critical noise level, the system could exhibit stochastic resonance and the performance of the model could reach its maximum . We consider a generic neuronal model derived as a set of nonlinear differential equations following the Hodgkin Huxley formalism . In this study, we investigate numerical efficiency of different performance optimization techniques applied to the neuronal model with white noise introduced as a random force.
