In this section you can find various movies about heart dynamics, both experimental and numerical. Use the tabs above to go to the experimental or numerical movies sections
In the figure, we show simulations and experiments illustrating the dynamics involved in the transition from normal rhythm to tachycardia and then to fibrillation.
It has become widely accepted that the most dangerous cardiac arrhythmias are due to reentrant waves, such as the spiral waves illustrated in the above figure. These electrical waves circulate repeatedly through the tissue with higher frequency than the heart's pacemaker, thereby altering the heart's regular function and resulting in inadequate pumping.
In this section you'll find many numerical and experimental movies of cardiac dynamics.
