Paper Abstract

Networks of non-linear oscillators have a potential to simulate physiological functions of living system. Expected similarity in spatiotemporal behavior was obtained in between the inter-cellular concentration pulse in Ca2+ triggered by f-sec laser irradiation and the current pulse propagation along excitable non-linear electrode pairs triggered by electric stimulus. These resemblances are owing to the same dynamical rules governing both biological and electrochemical systems.
