    Abstract

    The effects of electrical coupling on the temporal coding of neural signal in noisy Hodgkin-Huxley(HH) neuron ensemble are studied by virtue of the spike timing precision and the power norm. It is found that through the co-regulation of noise and electrical coupling, the information of the aperiodic input signal can be transferred accurately through the noisy neuron ensemble at the optimal coupling strength and noise intensity.
