Speaker
Duration
4:44

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
