The main dependent variable measured in the model is the membrane potential (millivolts) of two different neurons in a series. You will be able to add excitatory and inhibitory neurotransmitters, and compare how these modulate electrical impulses of the two neurons. Additionally, you will be able to compare the effects of three neurotoxins: Tetrodotoxin, botulinum toxin, and sarin nerve gas. While extremely lethal, these toxins are very instructive in understanding neurons because of the specific way the toxins act. Each toxin modifies or inhibits a specific molecule in neurons that help process and transmit information.

Do you ever feel like work is taking over your life? Burnout is generally characterized as a state of mental and physical exhaustion resulting in low productivity and de-personalization and is most likely caused by prolonged stress that does not dissipate. There are many different aspects that affect both the building and dissipation of burnout. This model focuses on workloads and vacations to see how they contribute to both your level of burnout and productivity. Use this model to ask questions about your workload and any benefits you would receive from taking a vacation. What happens when you suddenly have a bigger workload? What happens when work piles up? Does vacation increase or decrease your stress levels?

Explore a consulting firm’s headcount strategy. Understand the relationship between growth rates, promotion times, headcount pyramid ratios, and attrition rates. This model is based on actual work that was done with a very well-known consulting company (here, code-named TWBC, Inc.). The firm's strategic goals were well-articulated, and each made sense when written down in a list on a piece of paper. However, when subjected to the more rigorous, dynamic scrutiny that an iThink modeling effort provides, the goals (as is too often the case) turned out to be in conflict with one another--stimulating actions that worked at cross-purposes. Efforts to achieve one goal drove the firm farther away from achieving the others. The subsequent analysis conducted with the model also pointed the way toward resolving the internal strategic inconsistencies and putting the firm back onto a strategically sound growth path.

#80 - Irreversible Drug Effects - Proton Pump Inhibitors

by Sara Rosenbaum - 494 runs - 5 downloads
Download Model Play

Some drugs act by binding covalently to their receptors. As a result, the target is destroyed and its function returns only when it has been replaced by newly synthesized product. The target may be a protein, DNA, an enzyme, or a cell at any stage of development. This model has been applied to the action of the proton pump inhibitors, which bind to and destroy the H+,K+-ATPase pumps in the parietal cells of the gastric mucosa. Normal proton secretion is restored only when the pumps are replaced by newly synthesized functioning pumps (i.e., the usual turnover time of the system).

Experience the dynamics of making a business shift from traditional to e-commerce. Simulate different scenarios for how you’ll allocate spending on marketing versus infrastructure. You will see one of the more common dynamics in making a business shift, what Systems Thinkers refer to as the "worse before better" dynamic. If initial investments are made in the infrastructure quality rather than in marketing, total customers will actually fall for awhile. But if increasing amounts are spent on marketing (once the infrastructure is in place) then total customers will begin to explode. And the transition becomes successful!

#114 - The Wolves of Yellowstone

by isee systems - 17 runs - 158 downloads
Download Model Play

Keystone species are defined as a plant or animal that plays a unique role in the way the ecosystem functions. But what would happen if that species were removed? What ripple effects would be caused by the absence of this species? We can examine these questions by looking at the wolf population in Yellowstone National Park. Wolves once flourished in Yellowstone and its surrounding areas. However, soon after the area was settled, misperceptions caused by fear and hatred fueled a large extermination effort of the wolves. For nearly 70 years, wolves were absent from Yellowstone. During this time, the ecosystem changed and diminished until scientists realized the value of the wolves and reintroduced them to Yellowstone. This model, built in iThink, uses storytelling to understand the dynamics of this keystone species. What animals were affected by their presence or absence. See how wolves play a part in not only population control of their prey but other animals and even plants far down the trophic levels.

by Sara Rosenbaum - 306 runs - 5 downloads
Download Model Play

Tolerance may be defined as a process that results in a reduction in the response to a specific drug concentration following repeated drug exposure. Tolerance could occur if an endogenous compound that plays an essential role in the response chain becomes depleted during response. This model assumes the drug stimulates the production of a response variable which becomes then becomes depleted.

#130 - The Leaky Bucket

by Larissa M. Ramos - 309 downloads
View

Suppose we have a bucket sitting under a tap with water flowing into it at a constant rate. The bucket has a hole in the bottom, so water leaks out over time. The rate at which water flows out of the hole won't be constant because the water pressure at the bottom depends on the height of the water in the bucket. Therefore, if the bucket is nearly empty, only a trickle will escape, but if the bucket is full, the extra weight of the water will push the water out of the hole much faster. Also, if the hole is bigger, the water will flow out much faster. For this model, we're going to assume that the outflow rate is proportional to the volume of water in the bucket multiplied by the size of the whole: Out_flow = Volume_In_bucket * Size_of_hole

#156 - Process with Complete Quality Control Feedback Mechanisms

by Anthony Dowidowicz - 59 downloads
View

This model depicts a process with exogenous inflows where the efficacy of the process descreases in proportion to time spent in the process. It is followed by a quality control mechanism with sensitivities and specificities which also decrease with time spent in the quality process. This bounded process and quality control is then checked against a gold standard which then adjusts as necessary in alignment with larger policy goals and feeds a larger data set. This model represents a realistic vision of what frontline quality control mechanisms should exist in the healthcare delivery system. It can be used as a tool for policy making to determine what acceptable rates of efficacy and outcome can be tolerated as quality based payments grow in popularity.

#166 - Financial instability

by Crelis - 38 downloads
View

Market-capitalism typically goes through cycles of expansion and contraction. Every now and then, these common economic cycles go off the hinges. They become unstable and can lead to recessions, crises and depressions—phenomena that economists typically look to exogenous forces to explain. Alternative, mostly Marxian and Keynesian, explanations for the instabilities have been sought within the structure of the economic system itself. One such explanation is provided by Steve Keen in his Goodwin-Minsky model. The model effectively mimics the dynamics of key indicators prior to, during and after the 2007/08 crisis. However, the model is also over-specified, highly sensitive to initial conditions and therefore more difficult to convey. In line with George Box’s plea for parsimony, this paper presents a more straightforward version of Keen’s model that remains consistent with its fundamental behaviour. The model also illustrates the potential for further dialogue between Marxian economics and system dynamics.

An agrarian population can exceed its normal carrying capacity by the formation of a state that helps improve land productivity. As the population and state grow, it becomes harder for state revenue to stay ahead of expenditure. Eventually the state runs out of money and collapses, with a large drop in population numbers.
