KTz-family action potential map model for neurons and heart cells – simple visualization tool


This is a simple tool developed in HTML-JavaScript, designed to visualize the action potential behavior in response to stimuli. This tool was used as an aid in finding cell behaviors and tracing phase diagrams in the following publications:
