Computer Model Sheds Light on Biological Events Preceding Sudden Cardiac Death

Each rectangular structure represents a heart cell in the computer model. The color bursts depict propagating waves of calcium. Each cell is identical but exhibits a distinct pattern of calcium waves due to random ion channel gating. The team investigated how this randomness gives rise to sudden unpredictable heart arrhythmia. Credit: PLOS Computational Biology/Mark A. Walker
