This tutorial demonstrates how to perform cell-type deconvolution in order to estimate how proportions of cell-types in the brain change in response to various conditions. While these techniques may be useful in addressing a wide range of scientific questions, this tutorial will focus on the cellular changes associated with major depression (MDD).

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.

Brain network reconstruction from empirical data is of key importance to generate personalized virtual brain models. This lecture will introduce the basic concepts of preprocessing structural, functional and diffusion weighted neuroimages. It highlights the latest methods and pipelines to extract structural as well as functional connectomes according to a multimodal parcellation.

This lecture presents two recent clinical case studies using TVB: stroke recovery and dementia (due to Alzheimer’s Disease (AD)). Using a multi-scale neurophysiological model based on empirical multi-modal neuroimaging data, we show how local and global biophysical parameters characterize changes in individualized patient-specific brain dynamics, predict recovery of motor function for stroke patients, and correlate with individual differences in cognition for AD patients.
