The problem of analyzing and controlling epileptiform spikes in a class of
neural mass models is concerned with. Since the
measured signals are always contaminated by measurement noise, an algebraic
estimation method is utilized to observe the state from the noisy measurement. The feedback control is constructed via the estimated state. The feasibility of using such a strategy to control epileptiform spikes in a regular network of coupled neural
populations is demonstrated by simulations. In addition, the
influence of the type of the controlled populations, the number of
the controlled populations, and the control gain is
investigated in details.
