|Title:||Modeling Electrodiffusion and Osmosis in Physiological Systems|
|Seminar:||Mathematical Biology and Physiology Seminar|
|Speaker:||Yoichiro Mori, University of Minnesota|
|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.|
