Some articles on conduction:

VA Conduction
... VA conduction, also named Ventriculoatrial conduction and sometimes referred to as Retrograde conduction, is the conduction backward phenomena in the heart, where the conduction comes from the ... Retrograde VA conduction results in many different symptoms, primarily those symptoms result from the delayed, nonphysiologic timing of atrial contraction in relation to ...
Cable Theory - History
... the partial differential equations used by Fourier to describe heat conduction in a wire ... neuronal electrotonic potentials also by focusing on analogies with heat conduction ... Further mathematical theories of nerve fiber conduction based on cable theory were developed by Cole and Hodgkin (1920s-1930s), Offner et al ...
Pacemaker Syndrome - Pathophysiology - VA Conduction
... A major cause of AV dyssynchrony is VA conduction ... VA conduction, sometimes referred to as retrograde conduction, leads to delayed, nonphysiologic timing of atrial contraction in relation to ventricular ... Nevertheless, many conditions other than VA conduction promote AV dyssynchrony ...
Cut-off (electronics)
