Title:Modeling Electrodiffusion and Osmosis in Physiological Systems
Seminar:Mathematical Biology and Physiology Seminar
Speaker:Yoichiro Mori, University of Minnesota
Abstract:
Electrolyte and cell volume regulation is essential in physiological systems. After a brief introduction to cell volume control and electrophysiology, I will discuss the classical pump-leak model of electrolyte and cell volume control. I will then generalize this to a PDE model that allows for the modeling of tissue-level electrodiffusive and osmotic phenomena. This model will then be applied to the study of cortical spreading depression, a pathophysiological phenomenon in the brain that is thought to underlie migraine aura and other pathologies.
