Workshop on Transient Dynamics and Epilepsy

A one-day workshop focused around identifying mathematical challenges involving transient network dynamics and their application to epilepsy.

Event aims:

  • To present the latest advances in epilepsy research and the theory of transient dynamics on networks.
  • To make connections from mathematical theory to health related applications, in particular epilepsy.
  • An opportunity to develop a network of collaborative links between computational neuroscientists and clinical researchers studying epilepsy.

Who should attend?

This event intends to bring together computational neuroscientists and clinicians studying epilepsy. We welcome enquiries from all interested parties.

What is the event about?

Analysis of the transition between neurological states, such as a transition to a seizure like state in people with epilepsy is crucial to understanding and effective treatment of neurological disorders. Research into these transitions, also called transient dynamics, is an emerging area of interdisciplinary research that presents many challenges to study.

This workshop intends to identify mathematical challenges involving transient network dynamics, and determine how advances in this field could contribute to improving prognosis, diagnosis and treatment of epilepsy.

This event is supported by the EPSRC Centre for Predictive Modelling in Healthcare. The centre brings together a world leading team of mathematicians, statisticians and clinicians with a range of industrial partners, patients and other stakeholders to focus on the development of new methods for managing and treating chronic health conditions using predictive mathematical models.
