The Local Epileptor: Part 1

Difficulty level

In this lesson you will learn how to simulate seizure events and epilepsy in The Virtual Brain. We will look at the paper On the Nature of Seizure Dynamics, which describes a new local model called the Epileptor, and apply this same model in The Virtual Brain. This is part 1 of 2 in a series explaining how to use the Epileptor. In this part, we focus on setting up the parameters.

Topics covered in this lesson
  • Overview of modelling seizure in The Virtual Brain
  • Overview of The Epileptor
  • Overview of the 5 differential equations of The Epileptor
  • Configuring parameters for modelling seizure in The Virtual Brain
