Abstract / Description of output

The heart consists of several cell types. With ageing, the main cells (cardiomyocytes) are gradually replaced by the cells of connective tissue (fibroblasts), which keep the tissue together but perturb electrical signals required for the synchronous functioning of the cardiac cells. Fibroblasts and cardiomyocytes form different patterns.
