The Izhikevich spiking neuron model is a relatively new mathematical framework which is able to represent many observed spiking neuron behaviors, excitatory or inhibitory, by simply adjusting a set of four model parameters. This model is deterministic in nature and has achieved wide applications in analytical and numerical analysis of biological neurons due largely to its biological plausibility and computational efficiency. In this work we present a stochastic version of the Izhikevich neuron, and measure its performance in transmitting information in a range of biological frequencies. The work reveals that the deterministic Izhikevich model has a wide information transmission range and is generally better in transmitting information than its stochastic counterpart.
