The simulation of the virtual epileptic patient is presented as an example of advanced brain simulation as a translational approach to deliver improved results in clinics. The fundamentals of epilepsy are explained. On this basis, the concept of epilepsy simulation is developed. 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.
2nd part of the lecture. This lecture will discuss how understanding and applying simple neuroanatomical rules, one can localize the damage along the neuroaxis, the first crucial step toward making the correct clinical diagnosis and initiating treatment.
This lecture covers an Introduction to neuron anatomy and signaling, and different types of models, including the Hodgkin-Huxley model.
