Abstract

Knowledge concerning the electrophysiology of the heart is necessary for the understanding of many aspects of the physiological and pathophysiological cardiac behavior. The electrophysiology is tightly coupled with the mechanic deformation and the pump function of the heart by controlling the development of tension. Furthermore, various mechano-electrical feedback mechanisms influence the cardiac electrophysiology.
