Retained Excitation

In classical models of excitation an excited cells returns to refractory states either immediately or in few steps but in any case independently on a state if its neighbourhood. How space-time dynamics of excitation will change if we allow excited cells to stay excited for certain configurations of excitation in their neighbourhoods? Let us consider excitation rules which allow excitation to persist by enabling excited cells ‘support’ their already excited neighbours.
