Lecture title:

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: : Paul Triebkorn
Lecture title:

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.

Lecture title:

Along the example of a patient with bi-temporal epilepsy, we show step by step how to develop a Virtual Epileptic Patient (VEP) brain model and integrate patient-specific information such as brain connectivity, epileptogenic zone and MRI lesions. The patient's brain network model is then evaluated via simulation, data fitting and mathematical analysis. This lecture demonstrates how to develop novel personalized strategies towards therapy and intervention using TVB.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Speaker: : Julie Courtiol
Lecture title:

This lecture focuses on higher-level simulation scenarios using stimulation protocols. We demonstrate how to build stimulation patterns in TVB, and use them in a simulation to induced activity dissipating into experimentally known resting-state networks in human and mouse brain, a well as to obtain EEG recordings reproducing empirical findings of other researchers.

Difficulty level: Intermediate

Speaker: : Andreas Spiegler
Lecture title:

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.
