A four compartments model describes the electrotropic and the inotropic vagal effect time courses during long time stimulation. The model realises electro-mechanical coupling. A differential equation for the coupling model is developed, solutions are given and a numerical treatment is described. The model shows the essential properties of effect adaptation: time delay and smaller extent of electrotropic effect adaptation.
