FitzHughNagumo equations with generalized diffusive coupling
1.  Department of Mathematical Sciences, Corso Duca degli Abruzzi 24, 10129 Torino, Italy 
This approach enables us to address three fundamental issues. Firstly, each neuron is described using the wellknown FitzHughNagumo model which might allow to differentiate their individual behaviour. Furthermore, exploiting the Laplacian matrix, a well defined connection structure is formalized. Finally, random networks and an ensemble of excitatory and inhibitory synapses are considered.
Several simulations are performed to graphically present how dynamics within a network evolve. Thanks to an appropriate initial stimulus a wave is created: it propagates in a selfsustained way through the whole set of neurons. A novel graphical representation of the dynamics is shown.
