Typical output of a simulation with sub-optimal amounts of noise. Periodic input and added noise can be seen on the variations of the variable v. Note that threshold-crossing events occur only at the peak of the input sine. By increasing the amount of noise the system can be made to fire in ever cycle of the input sinusoid. V and w are as define on equation 1.
