Title: A Responsive Variable Frequency Stimulator for Seizure Control in a Computational Model
Authors: Dian, Joshua Adam

Abstract: Epilepsy, which manifests itself as spontaneous bouts of abnormal low complexity brain activity, is the second most common neurological disorder after stroke. This thesis explores the effect of variable frequency stimulation on seizure control. A responsive variable frequency electrical stimulation system is proposed and validated using a computational model capable of generating spontaneous seizure like events. The proposed stimulation system is demonstrated to outperform open-loop fixed frequency stimulation and responsive fixed frequency stimulation using seizure time based measures and a control energy measure.
