Background: During awake craniotomies, patients may either be awake for the entire duration of the surgical intervention (awake-awake-awake craniotomy, AAA) or initially sedated (asleep-awake-asleep craniotomy, SAS). Objective: To examine whether […]
Background: Recent findings associated with resting state cortical networks have provided insight into the brain’s organizational structure. In addition to their neuroscientific implications, the networks identified by resting state functional […]
Background: Microsurgery within eloquent cortex is a controversial approach due to the high-risk of permanent neurological deficit. Few data exist showing the relationship between mapping stimulation intensity required for eliciting […]
Background: Despite intraoperative technical improvements, the insula remains a challenging area for surgery because of its critical relationships with vascular and neurophysiological functional structures. Objective: To retrospectively investigate the morbidity […]
This video illustrates the anatomy-based approach to systematic seed selection and resting-state SCP network identification. It also demonstrates qualitative correspondence between stimulation mapping and resting-state SCP mapping results.
