The Center for Neurodynamics's Founding Director, Frank Moss, is one of the pioneers of the field of stochastic resonance. In addition to his work on the theoretical underpinnings of this phenomenon, Moss and his colleagues provided the first demonstration of stochastic resonance in a biological system in the crayfish:

Douglass JK, Wilkens L, Pantazelou E, Moss F.
Noise enhancement of information transfer in crayfish mechanoreceptors
by stochastic resonance.

Nature. 1993 Sep 23;365(6444):337-40.

Subsequent research (see other listings under "Projects") has explored the role of stochastic resonance in the sensory perception of various animals, ranging from paddlefish to humans.
