In science:

Since ventricular fibrillation in cardiac muscle is fatal [13,6,12], any insight gained about it by studying similar systems is of great interest.

We consider the pulsation of the gallbladder and of the cardiac muscle, with particular attention to the former as an example for application of the Detrended Fluctuation Analysis (DFA) method to data manipulation.
Complex dynamics of the biological rhythms: gallbladder and heart cases
For the latter, an analysis of the implications of fibres geometry over the cardiac muscle is needed, in the framework of a theoretical model for heart activity assuming several pacemakers bounded to the fibres in the heart complex geometry.
Complex dynamics of the biological rhythms: gallbladder and heart cases
The methods so far adopted rely either on phenomenological models of waves propagating over the cardiac muscle seen as a membrane [4,5], either on the application of data analysis methods looking for traces of chaoticity or fractality.
