Abstract
Cardiac myocytes constitute a unique physiological system. They are the muscle cells that build up heart tissue and provide the force to pump blood by synchronously contracting at every beat. This contraction is regulated by calcium concentration, among other ions, which exhibits a very complex behaviour, rich in dynamical states at the molecular, cellular and tissue levels. Details of such dynamical patterns are closely related to the mechanisms responsible for cardiac function and also cardiac...
