Simulates epileptiform EEG. Original model used for Figure 2 in Fietkiewicz and Loparo 2016. The MATLAB program uses Euler integration to create the basic plot in Figure 2. The model is based on the original model specified in Wendling F, Bartolomei F, Bellanger JJ, Chauvel P. Epileptic fast activity can be explained by a model of impaired GABAergic dendritic inhibition. Eur J Neurosci, 2002;15(9):1499-1508.
