In brief: Repolarization

The t wave on the electrocardiogram reflects the pattern of electrical repolarization in the heart.
During a myocardial infarction, the pattern of electrical repolarization is reversed resulting in a reversal of the axis of the t wave.

In brief: Electrical change

The electrocardiogram is a representation of the cardiac electricity.
As heart muscle changes -grows with hyper trophy or dies, or is ischemic the electrical potentials shift and present in the ekg.
