Brief Summary: ''HiPSC-derived cardiomyocytes can form three-dimensional self-organized tissue rings... the trained tissue show matured features including increased cardiac-specific gene expression, enhanced Ca2+-handling properties, an increased oxygen-consumption rate, and enhanced contractile force. A mathematical model interprets the origination, propagation, and long-term behavior of the findings.''
