  • LEARN: The Local Epileptor: Part 1

    • epilepsy

    Learn how to simulate seizure events and epilepsy in The Virtual Brain.

    We will look at the paper: On the Nature of Seizure Dynamics which describes a new local model called the Epileptor, and apply this same model in The Virtual Brain. This is part 1 of 2 in a series explaining how to use the Epileptor.

    In this part, we focus on setting up the parameters.
