Entrainment and annihilation of reentrant excitation in a periodically stimulated ring of excitable media.

Abstract

Excitable media, such as nerve, heart and the Belousov-Zhabotinsky reaction, exhibit a large excursion from equilibrium in response to a small but finite perturbation. Assuming a one-dimensional ring geometry of sufficient length, excitable media support a periodic wave of circulation. As in the periodic stimulation of oscillations in ordinary differential… (More)
