Abstract

In this paper, the transport phenomena of synaptic electric impulses are considered. The FitzHugh–Nagumo and FitzHugh–Rinzel models appear mathematically appropriate for evaluating these scientific issues. Moreover, applications of such models arise in several biophysical phenomena in different fields such as, for instance, biology, medicine and electronics, where, by means of nanoscale memristor networks, scientists seek to reproduce the behavior of biological synapses. The present article deals with the properties of the solutions of the FitzHugh–Rinzel system in an attempt to achieve, by means of a suitable “energy function”, conditions ensuring the boundedness and existence of absorbing sets in the phase space. The results obtained depend on several parameters characterizing the system, and, as an example, a concrete case is considered.
