Brain Dynamics Toolbox

Heitmann, Stewart; Breakspear, Michael

The Brain Dynamics Toolbox is an open software tool for simulating dynamical systems in matlab. It allows custom dynamical models to be explored in an intuitive graphical application while retaining the ability to script large-scale simulations. The toolbox can be applied to initial-value problems in systems of Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs), Delay Differential Equations (DDEs), Stochastic Differential Equations (SDEs) or Partial Differential Equations (PDEs).
