3. Theory of Electric Fields
A physically based modeling of electrophysiology at level of whole heart as well as of single muscle and nerve cells necessitates knowledge of electric fields. Changes of the electric field permit the propagation of excitation through the heart, from excitable cell to excitable cell, and over a single cell. The electrical excitation triggers mechanical contraction in muscle cells. Moreover electrical excitation is a carrier of information over nerve cells.
