An image from the simulation of a large, spherical cluster of cells responding to an electric pulse. Cells in the aggregate are color-coded by their transmembrane potential (hotter colors on cells imply higher transmembrane potential). The equatorial slice is to illustrate some of the computational techniques used for solving bioelectric interactions on the cell membranes.
