Abstract

Numerical simulation of an ionic model of an isolated nodal cell produces patterns of activity similar to those seen in the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction and in other physical and chemical systems in which chaotic dynamics is said to exist. However, no evidence of chaotic dynamics has yet been found in the modelling work. Recent experimental results on the sinatrial node reinforce this conclusion.
