Abstract
We present an automatic method to characterize calcium activity in a culture of cardiac cells from a sequence of microscopy fluorescence images. The approach quantifies both the response of each individual cell in the culture to external field stimulation and the propagation properties of calcium wave-fronts, thus providing complementary informa- tion at different physiological levels. The technique classifies the response of each cell as regular or irregular based on a set of dynamical and morp...
