In this paper we investigate various propagation phenomena for the FitzHugh-Nagumo system (% (4) with a nonhomogeneous threshold function $a(x)$. It is studied over a range of values $b$, $d,\varepsilon $ and function $a(x).$ Numerical simulations of system show that system (\ref{fh}) exhibits different patterns of behavior and they significantly differ from those in a homogeneous medium.
