A mathematical model of the afferent stage of the mammalian baroreceptor reflex
The purpose of this research effort is to develop a mathematical model of the afferent portion mammalian arterial baroreceptor reflex. The entire model is comprised of a small network of Hodgkin-Huxley (HH) type membrane ...
Mechanisms of repolarization and conduction in a mathematical model of electrophysiological responses in the human atrium
We have developed a mathematical model of the human atrial myocyte, based on averaged voltage-clamp data recorded from isolated single myocytes. This formulation can reconstruct action potential data which are representative ...
Mathematical modeling of the sinoatrial node cell in the rabbit heart
A mathematical model has been developed for the rabbit sinoatrial node (SAN) cardiac pacemaker cell, that is based on experimental results from whole-cell voltage clamp and action potential studies on single enzymatically-isolated ...
A model of the aortic baroreceptor in rat
The baroreceptor, a stretch-sensitive neuron, senses static and dynamic arterial blood pressure and responds by producing a frequency-modulated train of action potentials. The size and anatomy of baroreceptor nerve endings ...
Ventricular interaction in a closed-loop model of the canine circulation
A mathematical model of the dynamic interaction between the ventricles over a complete cardiac cycle is presented. The ventricles are modeled as a three-walled system, each of which is individually characterized by a ...
