Modeling Epilepsy with The Virtual Brain

Difficulty level

In this lesson, the simulation of a virtual epileptic patient is presented as an example of advanced brain simulation as a translational approach to deliver improved clinical results. You will learn about the fundamentals of epilepsy, as well as the concepts underlying epilepsy simulation. By using an iPython notebook, the detailed process of this approach is explained step by step. In the end, you are able to perform simple epilepsy simulations your own.

Topics covered in this lesson
  • Fundamentals of epilepsy
  • How to build a virtual epileptic patient
  • Hands-on guide through the iPython notebook
  • Creating your own epilepsy simulations with TVB
