We investigate theoretically and numerically the activation process in a single-out and coupled FitzHugh-Nagumo elements. Two qualitatively different types of the dependence of the mean activation time and of the mean cycling time on the coupling strength monotonic and non-monotonic have been found for identical elements. The influence of coupling strength, noise intensity and firing threshold on the synchronization regimes and its characteristics is analyzed
