Dictyostelium slug movement results from the coordinated movement of its 10(5)constituent cells. We have shown experimentally that cells in the tip of the slug show a rotational cell movement while the cells in the back of the slug move periodically forward (Siegert & Weijer, 1992). We have put forward the hypothesis that cell movement in slugs is(More)
Dictyostelium development is based on cell-cell communication by propagating cAMP signals and cell movement in response to these signals. In this paper we present a model describing wave propagation and cell movement during the early stages of Dictyostelium development, i.e. aggregation and mound formation. We model cells as distinct units whose cAMP relay(More)
