A finite-element model of a two-dimensional slice of human atrial tissue for the study of the electrograms and propagation of action potentials is presented. Action potential propagation is described by a reaction-diffusion model coupled with the complex Courtemanche et al. atrial cell model. The effects of recording electrode size and location on electrograms are presented. Action potential propagation as a result of atrial fibrillation ablation therapy is also modeled by defining a lesion area with decreased electrical conductivity. The effect of electrical conductivity and geometry of the lesion was also studied. It is shown that the success rate of atrial fibrillation ablation therapy is primarily correlated with the creation of continuous ablation lines and also the formation of fibrous tissue.
As Neurosurgeon I was interested to know more about epilepsy for two main reasons. First, the surgeon encounters and manages pathological conditions, which may induce seizures, these conditions are referred to as symptomatic epilepsies. Second, nearly one third of genuine epilepsies remain resistant to pharmacotherapy and neurosurgical intervention may be needed for better seizure control. That motivated me to join the research group of the Institute of the Anatomy of University of Szeged to follow experimemtal studies on 4-aminopyridin induced epileptic seizures. We aimed to follow the path and traces of epileptogenesis in every possible way: basic histological, electrophysiological, behavioural studies were accomplished with mapping of potential receptors playing central role in the process.
