NonMarkovian spiking statistics of a neuron with delayed feedback in presence of refractoriness
1.  Bogolyubov Institute for Theoretical Physics, Metrologichna str., 14B, 03680 Kyiv, Ukraine, Ukraine 
Recently, [35,6], it was proven for a neuron with delayed feedback and without the refractory state, that the output stream of interspike intervals (ISI) cannot be represented as a Markov process. The refractory state presence, in a sense limits the memory range in the spiking process, which might restore Markov property to the ISI stream.
Here we check such a possibility. For this purpose, we calculate the conditional probability density $P(t_{n+1}\mid t_{n},\ldots,t_1,t_{0})$, and prove exactly that it does not reduce to $P(t_{n+1}\mid t_{n},\ldots,t_1)$ for any $n\ge0$. That means, that activity of the system with refractory state as well cannot be represented as a Markov process of any order.
We conclude that it is namely the delayed feedback presence which results in nonMarkovian statistics of neuronal firing. As delayed feedback lines are common for any realistic neural network, the nonMarkovian statistics of the network activity should be taken into account in processing of experimental data.
