Neural Network Differential Equations For Ion Channel Modelling (2021)
Journal Article
Lei, C. L., & Mirams, G. R. (2021). Neural Network Differential Equations For Ion Channel Modelling. Frontiers in Physiology, 12, https://doi.org/10.3389/fphys.2021.708944

Mathematical models of cardiac ion channels have been widely used to study and predict the behaviour of ion currents. Typically models are built using biophysically-based mechanistic principles such as Hodgkin-Huxley or Markov state transitions. Thes...

Accounting for variability in ion current recordings using a mathematical model of artefacts in voltage-clamp experiments (2020)
Journal Article
Clerx, M., Lei, C. L., Whittaker, D. G., Gavaghan, D. J., de Boer, T. P., & Mirams, G. R. (2020). Accounting for variability in ion current recordings using a mathematical model of artefacts in voltage-clamp experiments. Philosophical Transactions A: Mathematical, Physical and Engineering Sciences, 378(2173), https://doi.org/10.1098/rsta.2019.0348

Mathematical models of ion channels, which constitute indispensable components of action potential models, are commonly constructed by fitting to whole-cell patch-clamp data. In a previous study, we fitted cell-specific models to hERG1a (Kv11.1) reco...
