The idea that physiological systems sometimes include oscillations as part of their control function is a relatively new idea; the paper discusses the role of such oscillations in the regulation of arterial blood pressure and how they can be studied by modelling techniques. A nonlinear model is proposed which can be related directly to the physiology. This is seen as an important step because mainly previous studies of biological oscillations have used lumped equations, e.g. the Van der Pol… CONTINUE READING
