Project Details


Experiments show that the pressure and flow regulation of the functional unit of the kidney (the nephron) can exhibit complex dynamical behaviors. The purpose of the project is to develop a physiologically satisfactory model that can account for clinical observations and reproduce the period-doubling and chaotic dynamics observed under certain circumstances. The characteristic swallow-tail structure of overlapping period-doubling and saddle-node bifurcations is examined by means of one- and two-dimensional bifurcation analyses.
