  author={Nakeya D. Williams and H. Tran and M. Olufsen},
This study compares a pulsatile and a non-pulsatile model for prediction of head-up tilt dynamics for healthy young adults. Many people suffering from dizziness or light-headedness are often exposed to the head-up tilt test to explore potential deficits within the autonomic control system, which is supposed to maintain the cardiovascular system at homeostasis. However, this system is complex and difficult to study in vivo. This study shows how mathematical modeling can be used to extract… Expand
