Use MATLAB or another program to implemented and test the equations for the Beeler-Reuter ventricular cell ionic model (1977). Now find in the literature or make up yourself a suitable formulation for the transient outward current Ito. Add this current to the model and use it to predict the effects as you increase the channel density by changing the conductance. Submit a report of your results and explanation of your findings.
