A stochastic model of excitatory and inhibitory interactions which bears universality traits is introduced and studied. The endogenous component of noise, stemming from finite size corrections, drives robust inter-nodes correlations, that persist at large large distances. Anti-phase synchrony at small frequencies is resolved on adjacent nodes and found to promote the spontaneous generation of long-ranged stochastic patterns, that invade the network as a whole. These patterns are lacking under the idealized deterministic scenario, and could provide novel hints on how living systems implement and handle a large gallery of delicate computational tasks.
