The electrical stimulation from the Purkinje fibers
depolarizes the myocardium at the Purkinje-myocardial junction sites, and
the excitation then propagates to neighboring cells. In this simulator,
tens of millions of cells are electrically connected each other to reproduce
the excitation propagation. Concomitantly, weak electrical currents flow
out from the heart to the chest wall to create the body surface potential.
The potential difference can be recorded as the electrocardiogram routinely
used in clinical practice.
