Caption: Richard Clayton. Portrait of the British medical physicist Dr Richard Clayton (born 1965). Clayton and his team at Leeds University, UK, developed a computer simulation of the electrical activity of the heart. They presented results in January 2002, where faulty heartbeats (called arrhythmias) had been modelled. Placing the virtual heart inside a virtual torso allowed virtual electrodes to be used to obtain an ECG (electrocardiogram) of the heart. This relates the disorders to clinical ECGs and allows the testing of different treatments. The simulation requires massive computing power that takes 24 hours to generate one second of heart activity.
