Abstract

The morphology and migration of individual cultured cell are studied in a flow chamber under optical microscope. Specifically, the particular group of cells under shear stress imposition is tracked. The findings indicate that the initial orientation and shape of cells affect the process of receiving the external shear stress stimulus. The individual cell behaves differently depending on the geometry of surrounding cells. Thus, the external shear stimulus causes to organized 'the small group behavior' partly due to the mutual interaction of cells.
