The dynamics of two simple neuron models subjected to periodic stimuli is studied at the level of the first passage time probability density. The results from analytic treatments of these models are presented, and a discussion of the important properties displayed by these models is given. Specifically, both models possess resonans phenomena in the first passage probability distribution, arising from of the interplay of characteristic time-scales in the system.
