Abstract: The phenomenon of anticipating synchronization of two excitable systems with unidirectional delayed coupling, subject to the same external forcing, was studied. For different paradigms of excitable systems, it was demonstrated that the excitability threshold for the slave system is always lower than that for the master due to the coupling. It was shown that the two systems respond to a common external forcing with different response time as a consequence of this phenomena. It was also shown that the anticipation time is limited by the response time of the master system.
