Abstract
Oscillatory behavior in tissue biology is ubiquitous and may be observed in the form of either chemical or mechanical signals. We present here and solve a mechanical cell model that exhibits oscillations emerging from delayed viscoelastic rheological laws. These include a time delay between the mechanical response and the rest-length changes, which evolve proportionally to the delayed cell deformation and use a remodeling rate parameter. We show that different regimes (no oscillatory response, s...
