The work discovers a stochastic bifurcation in delayed systems in the presence of both delay and additive noise. To understand this phenomenon we present a stochastic center manifold method to compute a non-delayed stochastic order parameter equation for a scalar delayed system driven by additive uncorrelated noise. The derived order parameter equation includes additive and multiplicative white and coloured noise. An illustrative neural system with delayed self-excitation reveals stationary states that are postponed by combined additive noise and delay. A final brief analytical treatment of the derived order parameter equation reveals analytically the shift of the stationary states which depends on the delay and the noise strength.
