Scientists from the University of Twente and UMC Utrecht are developing a mathematical model that can simulate the activity in different parts of the brain of epileptic patients. This helps to identify which brain parts play a role in epileptic attacks and may improve the surgical treatment. The project received a ZonMw Pearl, an honor only awarded to the most outstanding projects.
The UT is starting a new student team dedicated to biosensing. The team will participate in the annual SensUs competition which challenges students from all over the world to make biosensors for real-life applications. For its 2020 edition, the students need to develop a biosensor to help epilepsy patients.
