About the Book
In preparation for any brain surgery, neurologists and neurosurgeons map functions to specific locations in the brain using EEG, MRI and other techniques.
This book provides a clinically focused guide to this process, helping to ensure the smallest loss of brain function possible after brain surgery.
This book fills a void in the clinical neuroscience literature by providing a practical and clinically-focused resource for neurologists and neurosurgeons. It guides the practitioner through brain mapping techniques with an emphasis on how to map brain function and also reviews the systems that are mapped with a multi-modality approach. The book ends with chapters on specific applications of the techniques.
In contrast to existing texts, this book does not cover the myriad fascinating basic research questions that can be addressed with these techniques, but rather provides a resource for applying the techniques to the care of patients with neurologic and neurosurgical disease.
