Explore how to setup an epileptic seizure simulation with the TVB graphical user interface. This lesson will show you how to program the epileptor model in the brain network to simulate a epileptic seizure originating in the hippocampus. It will also show how to upload and view mouse connectivity data, as well as give a short introduction to the python script interface of TVB.

Speaker: : J. Helen Cross

The epilepsy SP actively promotes and supports epilepsy-related issues as well as educational and scientific activities within the framework of EAN. Our partners ILAE/ILAE Europe, EpiCare, EPNS and AOAN are actively involved. One of the major tasks is promoting submissions of session proposals for EAN congress balancing new scientific approaches and educational need for teaching courses. Outside of congress activities, contributions to e-learning facilities on the EAN website such as registrars reading list, scales and scores and breaking news are regularly presented or updated. Particular since the COVID pandemic, publications on COVID and any issues of epilepsy or seizures are regularly screened and summarized in neurology updates. In partnership with the ILAE/ILAE Europe, several guidelines are under preparation.

This lesson is a general overview of overarching concepts in neuroinformatics research, with a particular focus on clinical approaches to defining, measuring, studying, diagnosing, and treating various brain disorders. Also described are the complex, multi-level nature of brain disorders and the data associated with them, from genes and individual cells up to cortical microcircuits and whole-brain network dynamics. Given the heterogeneity of brain disorders and their underlying mechanisms, this lesson lays out a case for multiscale neuroscience data integration.

Speaker: : John Griffiths

This lesson breaks down the principles of Bayesian inference and how it relates to cognitive processes and functions like learning and perception. It is then explained how cognitive models can be built using Bayesian statistics in order to investigate how our brains interface with their environment. 

This lesson corresponds to slides 1-64 in the PDF below. 

Difficulty level: Intermediate
Duration: 1:28:14

Whereas the previous two lessons described the biophysical and signalling properties of individual neurons, this lesson describes properties of those units when part of larger networks.
