Local excitation, global inhibition mechanism for gradient sensing: an interactive applet.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

We have proposed a model in which cells detect gradients of chemoattractant by balancing a fast local excitation and a slower global inhibition. To illustrate this general mechanism, we have developed an interactive applet that mimics laboratory experiments in which either spatially homogeneous or heterogeneous stimuli of chemoattractant are applied.
