BACKGROUND Syncope is considered a risk factor for life-threatening arrhythmias in Brugada patients. Distinguishing a benign syncope from one due to ventricular arrhythmias is often difficult, unless an ECG is recorded during the episode. Aim of the study was to analyze the characteristics of syncopal episodes in a large population of Brugada patients and(More)
The Local Interaction Simulation Approach (LISA) has been applied to study the propagation of ultrasonic pulses in materials containing void inclusions. First the case of a single scatterer has been considered, with the conclusion that a void must be represented by at least four cells of the discretization lattice. Then the case of ultrasound propagation in(More)
We present a model to describe the physics of chemoreception in processes determined by competitive ligand binding. Our model describes the competition between various populations, such as ligands vs. blockers and receptors vs. decoys, in protein activation when diffusion is rate-determining. Full spatio-temporal solutions can be obtained numerically. The(More)
