Difficulty level

Duration
6:25

In this lecture we will focus on a paper called “The Virtual Epileptic Patient: Individualized whole-brain models of epilepsy spread”. Within their work, the authors used the epileptor model to simulate a patient's individual seizure. To understand the concept we will have a closer look at the equations of the epileptor model and particular the epileptogenicity index which controls the excitability of each brain region. Subsequently, we will begin to setup the epileptogenic zone in our own brain network model with TVB.

Topics covered in this lesson
  • Local epileptor model and epileptogenic zone
  • Setting up a brain network for epilepsy
