BOLD HRF display panel

A new panel (bdBoldHRF) has been added to the toolbox for simulating the Blood Oxygenation Level Dependent Haemodynamic Response Function (BOLD HRF) for any state variable of any model. It is a companion panel to the haemodynamic model (BOLDHRF) that was released last month. Links to the code...

BOLD Haemodynamic Response Function

A model of the Blood Oxygenation Level Dependent Haemodynamic Response Function (BOLD HRF) has now been added to the toolbox. It simulates the brain signal observed in functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI). Specifically, it computes the BOLD response to simulated neuronal activity within a...

Wilson-Cowan Model

Three variants of the Wilson-Cowan model of mutually-coupled populations of excitatory and inhibitory neurons are now included in the toolbox: (i) WilsonCowan implements the classic point-neuron (pictured). (ii) WilsonCowanRing implements a ring of neurons in one spatial dimension. (iii)...
