Example i53: 3D Duodenum - Slow Wave and Dipole Source

This example simulates the slow wave activity in the fully detailed 3D duodenum. The wall of this duodenal model contained three layers to represent the circular muscle (CM), Interstitial Cells of Cjal (ICC) and longitudinal muscle (LM) layers.A single dipole at each element from the transmembrane potential gradients is generated to investigate the wall effects (refer Master Thesis Section 5.2 - A. Lin (2003)).

An example of the transmembrane potential at two specific times is given below.

LM          ICC           CM

LM          ICC           CM



The comfile run by this example is as follows:
