Abstract : In this paper, we address the question of the discretization of Stochastic Partial Differential Equations (SPDE's) for excitable media. Working with SPDE's driven by colored noise, we consider a numerical scheme based on finite differences in time (Euler-Maruyama) and finite elements in space. Motivated by biological considerations, we study numerically the emergence of reentrant patterns in excitable systems such as the Barkley or Mitchell-Schaeffer models.
