ThesisAn approximate analytical solution for the excitation threshold in a one-dimensional Fitzhugh-Nagumo systemGreene, D'Artagnan G.Understanding the nature of electrical excitation of a group of cells is important both in examining the onset of a cardiac arrhythmia and in designing the treatment for sudden cardiac arrest. In the past, several attempts have been made to understand . . .
ArticleSlow [Na]Ichanges And Positive Feedback Between Membrane Potential And [Ca]Iunderlie Intermittent Early Afterdepolarizations And ArrhythmiasGrandi, EleonoraBackground—Most cardiac arrhythmias occur intermittently. As a cellular precursor of lethal cardiac arrhythmias, early afterdepolarizations (EADs) during action potentials(APs) have been extensively investigated, and mechanisms for the occurrence of E . . .
ArticleChen, Peng-ShengMathematical modeling of the cardiac action potential has proven to be a powerful tool for illuminating various aspects of cardiac function, including cardiac arrhythmias. However, no currently available detailed action potential model accurately repr . . .
ThesisHeart Rate Response, Duration, Grip Strength, and Anthropometric Characteristics in Recreational Indoor Rock ClimbersSmetanka, RobertRecreational indoor rock climbing continues to increase in popularity as the inclusion of climbing in the 2020 Olympics approaches. Despite the popularity of the sport there is a lack in research regarding the cardiovascular responses of recreational . . .
