The implementation of the aTokens issue - continuously increasing the aToken balance in a wallet

Expert

Hey everyone, I am currently trying to understand the implementation of the aTokens by reading through notion + github. https://github.com/aave/protocol-v2/blob/ice/mainnet-deployment-03-12-2020/contracts/protocol/tokenization/AToken.sol What I do not find is the part of continuously increasing the aToken balance in the users wallet. Can someone point me to it?

Check the `balanceOf `function of the AToken, the scaled balance (the tokens balance at deposit) is multiplied by the normalized income from that particular token reserve. The normalized income grows in every action as time passes if there is Aave flash loans, or repayment income.
