      Fire and smoke in enclosed spaces behave differently from those in open ones. Depending on scenario dimensions, fuel and ventilation, the fire passes through different stages after ignition. Together with the performance ...
    • Gap junction dynamics induces localized conductance bistability in cardiac tissue 

      Hawks, Claudia; Elorza Barbajero, Jorge; Witt, Annette; Laroze, David; Rodríguez Cantalapiedra, Inma; Peñaranda Ayllón, Angelina; Echebarría Domínguez, Blas; Bragard, Jean (2019-07-01)
      Article
      Open Access
      Connexins are specialized ionic channels that control the action potential propagation between cardiac myocytes. In this paper, we study the connexin dynamics in a one-dimensional model of cardiac tissue. We show that the ...
    • Influence of gap junction dynamics on the stability of reentrant waves in cardiac tissue
