Chiral anomaly manifests itself as chiral magnetic effect and chiral separation effect in the presence of background magnetic field. In a finite temperature medium, these effects turn charge diffusion wave into chiral magnetic wave. Both chiral magnetic effect and chiral magnetic wave can lead to direct and indirect signatures in heavy ion collisions experiment. In reality, magnetic field exists only at early stage of collisions, when medium is not fully thermalized. We investigate the modification of chiral magnetic effect and chiral magnetic wave in a thermalizing medium using a holographic model and discuss implications to heavy ion phenomenology.
