Poster #20: Olivia Walker – The Effect of Variable Conductivity on Cardiac Excitation

Faculty mentor: Rob Macleod

The success of applying a stimulus to the heart is a common research area of interest due to its many clinical applications. It is well established that conductivity plays an important role in the success of an applied stimulus; however, no study has aimed to explore how changes in conductivity affect cardiac excitation. In this study we developed a computational model that allowed us to vary conductivity and explore how cardiac excitation changed as a result.
