Using the improved memristive Izhikevich neuron model, the effects of autaptic connection as well as electromagnetic induction are studied on the dynamical behavior of neuronal spiking. Using bifurcation analysis for membrane potentials, the effects of autaptic and electromagnetic parameters on the mode transition in electrical activities of the neuron model are investigated. Furthermore, white Gaussian noise is considered in the neuron model, to evaluate the effect of electromagnetic disturbance on the firing pattern of the neuron using the coefficient of variation. The bifurcation diagram versus autaptic conductance and time delay has been extensively studied. The results show that the effects of autaptic connection as well as electromagnetic induction on the spiking behavior of neurons can be well demonstrated by using the Izhikevich model. The electrical activities of the Izhikevich neuron model become more complex when the effects of autaptic connection and electromagnetic induction are considered in the neuron model. Using the Izhikevich neuron model, the high variety of spiking/bursting patterns is represented in the bifurcation diagram of inter-spike interval versus autaptic or electromagnetic parameters. Noise can have distinct effects on the spiking activity of the neuron, for the subthreshold input current, increasing the intensity of the electromagnetic noise increases the regularity of the neuron spiking, but for the suprathreshold input current, the regularity of spiking decreases with noise.
