Based on the wavelet­analysis of experimental data, we study in this paper the phenomenon of synchronization of oscillations in the dynamics of small groups of structural units of the kidney (paired nephrons and triplets). Distinctions between synchronous dynamics of interacting nephrons in normal and hypertensive rats are discussed. We show that mean duration of synchronous oscillations is about 3 times less in hypertensive rats. We state that in­phase synchronization is the most typical case in the dynamics of interacting nephrons (more than 90% of experimental data). We compare the results of experimental data analysis and the results of mathematical modeling of the dynamics of interacting units of the kidney.
