Abstract In this paper, the bursting chaotic synchronization of two neurons coupled with gap junction in the condition of external electrical stimulation is investigated. In this paper, the coupled model is established on the basis of Hindmarsh-Rose neuron model, and then the relation of bidirectional coupling strength of the gap junction and the synchronization is discussed in detail. The sufficient condition of complete synchronization is obtained from rigorous mathematical derivation. The synchronizations of periodic neurons and chaotic bursting neurons are studied, respectively. Keywords: chaotic synchronization, Hindmarsh-Rose model, gap junction.
System of signals propagation from one neuron to another represent event of very complex electrochemical mechanism. Many cells are linked to each other by specialized intercellular pathways known as gap junctions. Gap junctions are clusters of aqueous channels that connect the cytoplasm of adjoining cells. They allow the direct transfer of ions and small molecules, including second messenger molecules, between cells without leakage to the extracellular fluid. As the gap junctions play an important role in the process of information transmitting among the coupled neurons system [1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 13]. Neurons can demonstrate different types of activity such as continuous spiking, bursting, etc. The Hindmarsh–Rose is one of the most popular low-dimensional
In agreement with this approach we assume it as a paradigm of both amplitude and spike timing chaos. may be applied. In Section 3. respectively. After introducing some ideas to be described in this paper. the complex behaviors including chaos are revealed. Recently.. a typical study of synchronization is the coupled chaotic identical chaotic systems . sodium) and slow varying (e. there has been tremendous interest in studying the synchronization of chaotic systems. calcium) currents.g. Therefore.2686 Mada Sanjaya WS et al neuron models exhibiting chaotic bursting dynamics [2. 7. The chaotic synchronization of two coupled neurons and the influence of coupling coefficient on chaotic synchronization are studied. Over last decade. In these papers. The synchronization may play an important role in revealing communication pathways in neural system. 2 The Hindmarsh-Rose model single neuron The original model introduced in  is given by dx ⎫ = y + ax 2 − x 3 − z + 1⎪ dt ⎪ dy ⎪ 2 = 1 − dx − y ⎬ dt ⎪ dz ⎪ = μ (b( x − x e ) − z ) ⎪ dt ⎭ (1) where x represents the membrane potential. μ is a small parameter. With the variation of the stimulation and the initial condition of the neuron. the model of two neurons electrically coupled with gap junction is given. The conclusion is given in Section 5. more physiologically conductance-based models of spiking neurons often exhibit many of the same qualitative phenomena that we . Although different in structure.g. b and xe are parameters.. y and z describe the dynamics associated with fast varying (e. I or I(t) is an external current supplied to the cell. in Section 2. when modelling the cooperative behavior of bursting neurons. d. this model is often used as a unit. such that the adiabatic approach in which the model is decomposed into a fast and a slow subsystem. 8. we give some reviews about the nonlinear bursting model of individual neuron in external stimulation. many new types of synchronization have appeared. Since the discovery of chaotic synchronization [11. the synchronization bursting of two neurons electrical birectional coupled Hindmarsh–Rose model with gap junction in periodic external electrical stimulation are the main focus. 12]. The synchronization of neurons Fitzhugh-Nagumo model electrical coupled with gap junction in external electrical stimulation is investigated detail in [4. 10]. synchronization of coupled chaotic systems has attracted considerable attention Especially. a. 9].

Hence the stimulus frequency ω can be considered as a significant parameter that affects the behavior of neuron. 8. can be done by introducing the stimulus [4. we choose a = 3. Furthermore. For this system.1. modified Hindmarsh-Rose neuron model gives periodic bursting. It can be observed that with the variation in stimulus frequency ω . if we τ = t . 1.005. 10] represented as I (t ) = ( A / ω ) cos(ωt ) (2) to (1) where A denotes the magnitude of the stimulus. and ω refers to the frequency of given stimulus. μ = 0.

Df denotes the Jacobian matrix of the individual oscillator system evaluated in the synchronization manifold and along s(t) the solution of x = f(x. 3. the local stability properties of the synchronization manifold can be derived by analyzing the stability of the fixed point δξ j = 0 of the linear non-autonomous systems of ordinary differential equation (8). for any coupling matrix C.…. three neurons in the same external simulation bidirectional coupled with gap junction (5)... j = 1. = x n (t ) = s (t ) (7) In fact. 2. 4. the synchronization solution (7) is always the solution of coupled system (4). the linearized equation for transversal perturbations takes the form & (8) δξ j = [Df ( s (t )) − nC ]δξ j . It was known that (9) is satisfied for all δξ j if and only if the real symmetric matrix Df T + Df − 2nC has negative eigenvalues everywhere throughout the attractor. the matrix 1 ( Df T + Df − 2nC ) coincides with the Jacobian matrix of the linearized 2 system (8). 8.. However. for n = 2. j = 1. n where. then [2.. i.

Hence. respectively. means that xi (t ) − x j (t ) → 0. The model is described as . If we apply the Lyapunov function criteria to (8) with the Lyapunov function V = δξ j 2 . the negativeness of the eigenvalues of the Jacobian matrix implies the stability of δξ j = 0 . The equation (9) is a sufficient condition for synchronization. In this way..
