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 ...
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 ...
An electrodiffusion model of conduction in nerve fibers
A new membrane model for mammalian nerve fibers has been developed. The membrane model utilizes new characterizations for delayed-rectifier currents, and adds an inwardly-rectifying potassium channel as well as a ...
Point-process modeling of excitatory/inhibitory interactions in LSO neurons
The thesis of this work is that the representation of sensory information in the discharges of single neurons can be characterized by point process models. The work focuses on the encoding of binaural information in the ...
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 ...
