Afferent arteriole autoregulation

Kidney posts Feb 22, 2014 Autoregulation Modelling

In a recent modelling study we extended an existing model of afferent arteriole autoregulation (originally presented by Feldberg et al.) by adding an explicit glomerulus and calculating model SNGFR in addition to afferent blood and plasma flows.

See this description of our extensions, the updated model equations, and a number of plots. The source code is available under the BSD 3-Clause license.
