When performing simulations of complex systems, visualization of the spatio-temporal patterns is critical to uncovering the mechanisms of interest. In this talk, I will discuss our use of visualization over the years to study cardiac electrophysiology and cardiac tissue structure at multiple scales. I will present examples from both computer models and experiments ranging from conduction along strands of connected myocytes to fibrillating wavefronts on realistic atrial geometries. In each case, I will show how the visualizations have led to new insights and drove the research directions.
