Reduced Heart Rate and Cardiac Output Differentially Affect Angiogenesis, Growth, and Development in Early Chicken Embryos (Gallus domesticus)
This article demonstrates for the first time that different processes in the ontogeny of the early vertebrate embryo (i.e., hypertrophic growth vs. development) have differential sensitivities to altered convective blood flow.
A Three-Dimensional Functional Assessment of Heart and Vessel Development int he Larva of the Zebrafish (Danio rerio)
This article describes the use of a three-dimensional integration of the early zebrafish heart and vessels to greatly reduce measurement error of stroke volume and cardiac output and to determine the cross-sectional growth of major vessels in the developing zebrafish larvae.
What is the Purpose of the Embryonic Heart Beat? or How Facts Can Ultimately Prevail over Physiological Dogma
This invited perspectives article presents evidence in support of a morphogenic rational for prosynchronotropy (i.e., the heart starts to beat well before convective blood flow is needed for bulk transport).
