Abstract Izhikevich network is a relatively new neuronal network, which consists of cortical spiking model neurons with axonal conduction delays and spike-timing-dependent plasticity (STDP). In this network polychrony is identified which is neither synchrony nor asynchrony, but a phenomenon of occurence and transmission of a sequence of firing patterns with specific inter-firing intervals. In this work we use van Rossum's distance to measure the correlation between spike trains issued by neurons in a testing polychromous group and analyse the characterisation of information flow in the group of the network.
