Tutorial Title


  • This example makes use of the Electrophysiology Module's Equation Editor to create a 2D action potential propagation model on a mesh with heterogeneous properties. In essence, we will be making part of the mesh 'dead' electrically and note its influence on the shape of the propagating wave.
