" ... We propose here a mathematical model of how spontaneous Ca2+
oscillations arise in astrocytes. This model uses the calcium-induced calcium release and inositol cross-coupling
mechanisms coupled with a receptor-independent method for producing inositol (1,4,5)-trisphosphate as the heart
of the model. By computationally mimicking experimental constraints we have found that this model provides
results that are qualitatively similar to experiment."
