The “handwriting brain”: A meta-analysis of neuroimaging studies of motor versus orthographic processes
TLDR
This meta-analysis provides a description of the cerebral network of handwriting as revealed by various types of neuroimaging experiments and confirms the crucial involvement of the left frontal and superior parietal regions. Expand
Language Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging in Preoperative Assessment of Language Areas: Correlation with Direct Cortical Stimulation
TLDR
The overall results of this study demonstrated that language f MRI could not be used to make critical surgical decisions in the absence of direct brain mapping, and other acquisition protocols are required for evaluation of the potential role of language fMRI in the accurate detection of essential cortical language areas. Expand
The graphemic/motor frontal area Exner's area revisited
TLDR
Direct cortical stimulation and functional magnetic resonance imaging were used to study the human frontal areas involved in writing. Expand
Awake Craniotomy vs Surgery Under General Anesthesia for Resection of Supratentorial Lesions
TLDR
AC with brain mapping is safe and allows maximal removal of lesions close to functional areas with low neurological complication rates and provides an excellent alternative to craniotomy under GA. Expand
Writing, calculating, and finger recognition in the region of the angular gyrus: a cortical stimulation study of Gerstmann syndrome.
TLDR
Symptoms of Gerstmann syndrome can be found during direct brain mapping in the angular gyrus region, which may or may not have been associated with object-naming, color-n naming, or reading sites. Expand
Organization of language areas in bilingual patients: a cortical stimulation study.
TLDR
Bilingual patients who underwent surgery for brain tumors, during which the authors mapped cortical language sites by using electrostimulation, found that language tasks such as counting, reading, or word retrieval in different languages can be sustained by language- and task-specific cortical areas. Expand
INTRACRANIAL MENINGIOMA SURGERY IN THE NINTH DECADE OF LIFE
TLDR
Surgery of intracranial meningioma in elderly patients is feasible when the SKALE score is 8 or greater, and Prospective studies are required to validate this grading system. Expand
Anatomical correlates for category‐specific naming of objects and actions: A brain stimulation mapping study
TLDR
Electrostimulation mapping was performed to investigate the extent to which the cortical neural networks underlying object‐ and action‐naming processing overlap, and found anatomical loci in line with a cortical distinction between objects and actions based on conceptual/semantic features would preferentially underpin (functional) properties of objects. Expand
Motor cortex stimulation for neuropathic pain.
TLDR
The authors review the extensive literature published over the last 15 years on central and neuropathic pain and conclude that epidural motor cortex stimulation should be considered as the treatment of choice in post-stroke pain, thalamic pain or facial anesthesia dolorosa. Expand
Management of hydrocephalus in pediatric patients with posterior fossa tumors: the role of endoscopic third ventriculostomy.
TLDR
A study to evaluate the effectiveness of endoscopic third ventriculostomy in the management of hydrocephalus before and after surgical intervention for posterior fossa tumors in children in Paris found no significant differences between groups. Expand
