Computational medicine: bioelectric field problems

  title={Computational medicine: bioelectric field problems},
  author={Christopher R. Johnson and Robert S. MacLeod and Michael A. Matheson},
Applications of large-scale computer modeling and simulation to a class of bioelectric field problems in a variety of biomedical research areas, from single cells to full human structures, are described. The authors focus on a specific subset of bioelectric field problems that have applications in electrocardiography and electroencephalography. The physics and physiology of bioelectric volume conductors are introduced. A specific computational example and the authors' view on the future… CONTINUE READING
