Have you ever wondered what the inside of a beating human heart looks like?

Well, wonder no more, as researchers have developed an impressive simulation of the human heart to model its movements.

The video below – from the Supercomputational Life Science YouTube channel – shows how the heart’s valves open and close, how the ventricles and atrium throb to cause a heartbeat, and how blood flows inside the heart’s chambers.

This anatomically accurate model can be used to help further our knowledge of how the heart works and potentially enable scientists to find treatments for diseases and defects of the heart.
