Cardiac electrophysiology

The purpose is to simulate the propagation of the action potential in the heart. A lot of works has already been devoted to this topic in the literature (see e.g. [30], [34], [33] and the references therein), nevertheless there are only very few studies showing realistic electrocardiograms obtained from partial differential equations models. Our goal is to find a compromise between two opposite requirements: on the one hand, we want to use predictive models, and therefore models based on physiology, on the other hand, we want to use models simple enough to be parametrized (in view of patient-specific simulations). One of the goal is to use our ECG simulator to address the inverse problem of electrocardiology. In collaboration with the Macs/M3disym project-team, we are interested in the electromechanical coupling in the myocardium. We are also interested in various clinical and industrial issues related to cardiac electrophysiology, in particular the simulation of experimental measurement of the field potential of cardiac stem cells in multi-electrode arrays.
