Gain of function mutations of SCN1A, the gene coding for the voltage-gated sodium channel NaV1.1, cause familial hemiplegic migraine type 3 (FHM-3), whereas loss of function mutations cause different types of epilepsy. To study those mutations, we developed a two-neuron conductance-based model of interconnected GABAergic and pyramidal glutamatergic neurons, with dynamic ion concentrations. We modeled FHM-3 mutations with persistent sodium current in the GABAergic neuron and epileptogenic mutations by decreasing the fast-inactivating sodium conductance in the GABAergic neuron.
