Here we used a 10,000 neuron model. The neurons are a mixture of excitatory and inhibitory integrate-and-fire neurons connected with synapses that exhibit synaptic depression. Three different connectivity paradigms were tested to look for spontaneous transition between interictal spiking and seizure: uniform, small-world network, and scale-free. All three model types are included here.
