Abstract: The brain has always been known to be a powerful computational tool as it possesses problem solving and exceptional calculating abilities. As such, neuroscientists and researchers are always fascinated by how the brain works as this knowledge will help in treating brain disorder and create better machines that use brain-like computing principles. With the recent research development in spiking neural network models, we have come to know that unlike the classic neural network models, these models communicate though the precise timing of neuron spikes, hence making them more biologically realistic. To support the field of artificial intelligence which implements spiking neural network models, this paper presents different phase locking behaviour of two popular formal spiking neural network models - Leaky Integrate and Fire and Resonate and Fire neurons to various periodic input stimulus. Differences in computation are also observed when both neuron models are coupled to form a Winner Take All circuit. All interpretations of neural responses presented in this paper are based on results obtained from numerical simulations performed using MATLAB.
