Abstract. The multiagent approach allows to effectively address and
manage the complex regulation of physiological processes. In this paper
we argue why multiagent regulating systems need to be simulated in
order to assess the properties of interest. In particular, we consider a
multiagent regulator of the glucose-insulin metabolism and we show how
the effectiveness of its control activity and other salient properties of this
system can be derived from simulation.
1 Introduction
Physiological processes represent an extremely complex class of phenomena to
study and regulate [1]. This is mainly due to the fact that each physiological
process emerges from the interaction of several elements belonging to an in-
tricate network of relationships, where each element can be involved in more
processes. In previous papers we have introduced the anthropic agency approach
