About these proceedings


Over the last two decades monophasic action potential (MAP) recording has matured into a technique that provides a link between basic and clinical electrophysiology. International experts present exciting data on MAP recording techniques, the mechanism and interpretation of MAPs, and novel aspects of repolarization-related arrhythmias.
