Thesis title: Quantitative modeling of epileptic seizures

Supervisors: Peter ROBINSON , Pulin GONG , Dongping YANG , Paula SANZ-LEON

Thesis abstract:

A quantitative analysis of the dynamics of generalized epileptic seizures is done by using a neural field model of the corticothalamic system in the presence of a temporally varying connection strength between the cerebral cortex and thalamus. The temporal and dynamical characteristics of generalized absence seizure, generalized tonic-clonic seizures and the inter-ictal oscillations in between two successive seizures are analyzed and related with the corresponding physiological changes of the connection strength. It is seen that the spectral, temporal, and physiological characteristics of seizure oscillations changes with the rate of change and amplitude of the connection strength. The transitions between different states during seizures are inversely proportional to the square root of the ramp rate.
