Modelling heart electrophysiology
Cardiac arrhythmia, irregular beating of the heart, is a frequent cause of death and disability. To study the complex electrical system that is behind these arrhythmia, mathematical models are widely used. Scientists of the EU-funded MICROCARD project want to build a successor to these cardiac electrophysiology models that represents individual cells and their interconnections. However, this greatly increases the size and complexity of the simulations and requires exascale computing. MICROCARD will develop a sophisticated simulation platform that is suitable for exascale computers and provides reliable insight into the electrophysiology of the heart and similar biological systems such as nerves, muscles, the eye, and the brain.
