Oscillatory and excitable cells are just two of many types of cells in your body. They interact with each other by sending pulses or voltage spikes. An excitable cell amplifies any input it receives, as long as the input is large enough while an oscillatory cell needs no input and generates a spontaneous rhythm. One can connect these cells and model how they interact using differential equations; in this talk, I will discuss what we have found.
