Many physiological systems in neurophysiology, immunology and cell biology possess different time scale at the single cell and population levels. The interaction of such time scales allow these systems to exhibit interesting and complex dynamics that are essential for their function. The use of slow-fast analysis to study these muti-scale systems is essential for deciphering their underlying dynamics. In this minisymposium, speakers will present their work on how such approaches allowed us to determine the implications of the presence of different time-scales on functions in many physiological systems in health and disease.
