The interplay between intrinsic and network dynamics has been the focus of many investigations. Here we use a combination of theoretical and numerical approaches to study the effects of delayed global feedback on the information transmission properties of neural networks. Specifically, we compare networks of neurons that display intrinsic interspike interval correlations (nonrenewal) to networks that do not (renewal). We find that excitatory and inhibitory delays can tune information transmission by single neurons but not by the entire network. Most surprisingly, addition of a delay can change the dependence of the information on the coupling strength for renewal neurons and not for nonrenewal neurons. Our results show that intrinsic ISI correlations can have nontrivial interactions with network-induced phenomena.
