Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

Intracellular cardiac Ca2+ handling involves interactions of numerous distinct cellular and macromolecular structures. Such interactions coordinate the complicated behaviors of individual processes into spatial and temporal coherent patterns of Ca2+ sparks, oscillations and traveling waves. Understanding the dynamical behaviors and functional roles of intracellular Ca2+ handling requires not only detailed experimental information about subcellular structures and dynamics, but also useful tools to integrate and analyze this information. This requires interactions between experimental and simulation results within a virtual cell.
