Abstract: We present herein a first attempt to integrate large and small scale phenomena within an image-based computational domain. The aim of the present study is to highlight some of the underlying mechanisms that govern cellular interaction in the vascular wall, using a nonlinear model of vasomotion. We show that macroscopic rhythmic activity and emergent phenomena can indeed reflect ion movements at the level of the individual cell.
