In this lecture we will focus on a paper called The Virtual Epileptic Patient: Individualized whole-brain models of epilepsy spread. 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.
After introducing the local epileptor model in the previous two videos, we will now use it in a large-scale brain simulation. We again focus on the paper The Virtual Epileptic Patient: Individualized whole-brain models of epilepsy spread. Two simulations with different epileptogenicity across the network are visualized to show the difference in seizure spread across the cortex.
This lecture gives an overview on the article Individual brain structure and modelling predict seizure propagation, in which 15 subjects with epilepsy were modelled to predict individual epileptogenic zones. With the TVB GUI we will model seizure spread and the effect of lesioning the connectome. The impact of cutting edges in the network on seizure spreading will be visualized.
This lecture presents the Graphical (GUI) and Command Line (CLI) User Interface of TVB. Alongside with the speakers, explore and interact with all means necessary to generate, manipulate and visualize connectivity and network dynamics.
This lecture briefly introduces The Virtual Brain (TVB), a multi-scale, multi-modal neuroinformatics platform for full brain network simulations using biologically realistic connectivity, as well as its potential neuroscience applications (e.g., epilepsy cases).
This lecture introduces the theoretical background and foundations that led to the development of TVB, its architecture, and features of its major software components.
This tutorial demonstrates how to use the image processing pipeline with the HBP collab.
This tutorial provides instruction on how to perform multi-scale simulation of Alzheimer's disease on The Virtual Brain Simulation Platform.
This presentation accompanies the paper entitled: An automated pipeline for constructing personalized virtual brains from multimodal neuroimaging data (see link below to download publication).
This lesson consists of a supplementary video for the publication: Inferring multi-scale neural mechanisms with brain network modelling.
This lecture provides an overview of successful open-access projects aimed at describing complex neuroscientific models, and makes a case for expanded use of resources in support of reproducibility and validation of models against experimental data.
