The Virtual Brain (TVB) is an open-source, multi-scale, multi-modal brain simulation platform. In this lesson, you get introduced to brain simulation in general and to TVB in particular. This lesson also presents the newest approaches for clinical applications of TVB - that is, for stroke, epilepsy, brain tumors, and Alzheimer’s disease - and show how brain simulation can improve diagnostics, therapy, and understanding of neurological disease.

This lesson explains the mathematics of neural mass models and their integration to a coupled network. You will also learn about bifurcation analysis, an important technique in the understanding of non-linear systems and as a fundamental method in the design of brain simulations. Lastly, the application of the described mathematics is demonstrated in the exploration of brain stimulation regimes.

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.

The state of the field regarding the diagnosis and treatment of major depressive disorder (MDD) is discussed. Current challenges and opportunities facing the research and clinical communities are outlined, including appropriate quantitative and qualitative analyses of the heterogeneity of biological, social, and psychiatric factors which may contribute to MDD.

Difficulty level: Beginner
Duration: 1:29:28

This lesson delves into the opportunities and challenges of telepsychiatry. While novel digital approaches to clinical research and care have the potential to improve and accelerate patient outcomes, researchers and care providers must consider new population factors, such as digital disparity.

Not long ago, scientists in physiotherapy would claim for the need of big data and large initiatives in the US have already allowed to collect large retrospective data on recovery after brain injury and are working to collect prospective data. In Europe, there is a large field of collaboration in the field of aphasia supported by the European cooperation in Science and Technology that is collecting data on language recovery throughout the world. This lecture discusses recent advances in sharing big data for neurorehabilitation.
