Seizures and other extreme events in the brain

How do epileptic seizures develop? A new model may help to answer this question. Physicists have developed a model whose behavior – although based on strict rules – can apparently change spontaneously. There are also changes of this type in nature, for example, in the development of migraine attacks or epileptic seizures. The mechanism, described for the first time by the researchers, could help to better understand extreme events such as these.
