I am thinking the biochemical mechanisms of the simultaneous depolarisations of two pacemakers.

My intuition

  • Funny channels (but not alone)
  • No autonomic nervous system (my conjencture)

What are the mechanisms of simultaneous depolarisation of (two) pacemakers?

Is double depolarisation of pacemakers always a pathological?

I doubt that the continuously leaking Funny channels are enough. My intuition that they cannot start alone simultaneous depolarisation of pacemakers. There must be something else that is triggering it.
