Reduced models for the pacemaker dynamics of cardiac cells.


We introduce three- and two-dimensional biophysical models of cardiac excitability derived from a 14-dimensional model of the sinus venosus [Rasmusson, R., et al., 1990. Am. J. Physiol. 259, H352-369]. The reduced models capture normal pacemaking dynamics with a small complement of ionic currents. The two-dimensional model bears some similarities with the… (More)
