Multiple Oscillatory States and Chaos in the Endogenous Activity of Excitable Cells: Pancreatic β-Cell as an Example
The behaviour of pancreatic β-cells may be described by a system of three nonlinear differential equations that shows multiple oscillatory and chaotic solutions. Bifurcation diagrams of this system are constructed using AUTO.
