We study the nonlinear Rulkov map-based neuron model forced by random disturbances. For this model, an overview of the variety of stochastic regimes is given. For the parametric analysis of these regimes, the stochastic sensitivity functions technique is used. In a period-doubling zone, we analyze backward stochastic bifurcations modelling changes of modality of noisy neuron spiking. Noise-induced transitions in a zone of bistability are considered. It is shown how such random transitions can

A transient zone of values of noise intensity corresponding to the onset of noise-induced bursting and chaotization is localized by the stochastic sensitivity functions technique.
