Please take this quick survey to tell us about what happens after you publish a paper. Acta Neurochirurgica. To perform planned subtotal resection followed by gamma knife surgery GKRS in a series of patients with large vestibular schwannoma VSaiming at an optimal functional outcome for facial and cochlear nerves.
One of the most exciting areas of rehabilitation research is brain-controlled prostheses, which translate electroencephalography EEG signals into control commands that operate prostheses. However, the existing brain-control methods have an obstacle between the selection of brain computer interface BCI and its performance. In this paper, a novel BCI system based on a facial expression paradigm is proposed to control prostheses that uses the characteristics of theta and alpha rhythms of the prefrontal and motor cortices.
Either in the presence or in the absence of a lesion, once a patient with epilepsy is deemed a good candidate for resective surgery, they will often undergo preresection mapping to identify eloquent areas of cortex. Several techniques can be used, and the most common ones are cortical stimulation mapping CSM and central sulcus localization with somatosensory evoked potentials SEP. The organization of motor and sensory function was first described by Penfield and Rasmussen in a paper and schematics published in Figure
Neurosurgery can be considered a radical method to treat some illnesses and can seriously damage the nervous system. To avoid deleterious effects, such injuries must be detected during their initial development by means of intraoperative neurophysiological techniques including intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring IONM and functional mapping. Neurooncology - Newer Developments. Neuro-oncology is a great challenge for neurosurgeons from two perspectives: first, in some types of tumours, gross total resection GTR is the best predictor of outcome in terms of life expectancy [ 12 ]; second, a main goal of every surgery is to avoid introducing new iatrogenic lesions.

Electrocorticography ECoGor intracranial electroencephalography iEEGis a type of electrophysiological monitoring that uses electrodes placed directly on the exposed surface of the brain to record electrical activity from the cerebral cortex. In contrast, conventional electroencephalography EEG electrodes monitor this activity from outside the skull. Because a craniotomy a surgical incision into the skull is required to implant the electrode grid, ECoG is an invasive procedure.
Although most people can identify facial expressions of emotions well, they still differ in this ability. Some studies suggest automatic facial mimicry during expression viewing; however, findings on the relationship between mimicry and emotion perception abilities are equivocal. The present study investigated individual differences in emotion perception and its relationship to facial muscle responses - recorded with electromyogram EMG - in response to emotional facial expressions.

AIMS have been shown to improve processes of care. However, implementing these systems is expensive and takes a tremendous effort from both clinicians and information technology staff.
R esection of LGGs, here understood as Grade II gliomas according to the WHO classification, 6768 forces the neurosurgeon to face uncommon difficulties and is still a subject of considerable debate. Third, LGGs present predominantly with seizures. If the patients do not undergo appropriate serial MR imaging, it may be difficult to prove the tumor's volumetric increase.
