  • It is shown, by means of numerical simulations, that intercellular spiral waves of calcium can be initiated in a network of coupled cells as a result of a de-synchronization between Ca 2+ oscillations in two domains. No artificial heterogeneities need to be imposed to the system for spontaneous formation of spiral waves. The de-synchronization occurs near the interface of the stimulated region (which acts as a pacemaker) and propagates over the entire network. We also find the outcome of the… CONTINUE READING
