Frequency dependent stochastic resonance in inhibitory coupled excitable systems

Resume:
We study frequency selectivity in noise-induced subthreshold signal processing in a system with many noise-supported stochastic attractors which are created due to slow variable diffusion between identical excitable elements. Such a coupling provides coexisting of several average periods distinct from that of an isolated oscillator and several phase relations between elements. We show that the response of the coupled elements under different noise levels can be significantly enhanced or reduced by forcing some elements in resonance with these new frequencies which correspond to appropriate phase relations.
