Abstract
Soft active tissues exhibit softening, hardening, and reversible fluidisation [14]. The result of these non-linear behaviour is due to multiple processes taking part at di erent scales: active protein motors that actuate at the polymeric structure of the cell, (de)polymerisation and remodelling of the cytoskeleton, and cell-cell connectivity changes that take place at the tissue level. We here present a cell-centred model that takes into account the underlying active process at the cytoskeleton ...
