Abstract: In this talk I will introduce a body of work that describes the contribution of large scale brain networks to seizure generation. Utilising mathematical concepts from graph theory, dynamical systems and complexity sciences, a framework is developed within which competing experimental and clinical hypotheses can be explored and evaluated. The developed modelling framework further provides an environment within which perturbations to the system (for example environmental, pharmacological or surgical) can also be evaluated. Finally I will explore the translational potential of these findings to alter the clinical pathway for people with epilepsy; from diagnosis and prognosis through to surgery.
