Every muscular motion generates a bioelectrical impulse. This can be used to monitor the health of the muscles producing the impulse.
When the bioelectrical impulse is disturbed, sometimes it can be driven into a long-lasting loop activity called re-entry, where the bioelectrical impulse ‘loops back onto’ itself. Re-entry is a major problem because it can disrupt the normal rhythm of activities in the gut or the heart.
This work shows a mosaic of the initiation and maintenance of a re-entry event. The tile on the top left corner shows the initiation from a point, which morphs into a repetitive re-entry over time.
