OBJECT There is continuous interest in the monitoring of language function during tumor resection around the frontotemporal regions of the dominant hemisphere. The aim of this study was to visualize language-related subcortical connections, such as the arcuate fasciculus (AF) by diffusion tensor (DT) imaging-based tractography. METHODS Twenty-two patients(More)
The authors represent a cooperative group of 15 institutions that examined the feasibility of using metabolic features observed in vivo with 1H-magnetic resonance (MR) spectroscopy to characterize brain tumors of the glial type. The institutions provided blinded, centralized MR spectroscopy data processing long with independent central review of MR(More)
Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) were performed in six subjects during self-paced finger movement performance, tactile somatosensory stimulation and binaural auditory stimulation using identical stimulation paradigms. Both functional imaging modalities localized brain activity in adjacent areas of anatomically(More)
A retrospective analysis of 111 patients with aneurysms associated with Moyamoya disease is presented. The subjects comprised of our 12 cases and 99 other well-documented cases. These 111 cases had 131 aneurysms. There were 48 males and 63 females. The average age was 40.3 years. The clinical manifestations were intracranial haemorrhage in 99 cases (89%),(More)
BACKGROUND In this study, we visualized the eloquent motor system including the somatosensory-motor cortex and corticospinal tract on a neuronavigation system, integrating magnetoencephalography (MEG), functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), and anisotropic diffusion-weighted MRI (ADWI). METHODS Four patients with brain lesions adjacent to the(More)
We evaluated and analysed our own 31 cases of the haemorrhagic type of moyamoya disease to clarify the clinical features of this disease. The cases were divided into three groups. Group A consisted of 12 cases with aneurysms. Aneurysms on the circle of Willis were treated as ordinary saccular aneurysms. Group B consisted of 14 cases with intracerebral(More)
Three patients undergoing surgery for cerebello-pontine angle meningioma suffered transient episodes of asystole. All patients exhibited return to the previous heart rate with cessation of surgical manipulations and administration of anticholinergic agents. These reactions were apparently elicited by activation of the trigeminocardiac reflex (TCR) by direct(More)
The Fifth International Workshop on Advances in Electrocorticography convened in San Diego, CA, on November 7-8, 2013. Advancements in methodology, implementation, and commercialization across both research and in the interval year since the last workshop were the focus of the gathering. Electrocorticography (ECoG) is now firmly established as a preferred(More)
PURPOSE This study evaluated the effect of various ceramic surface treatments on the shear bond strengths of four resin luting agents to Cerec 2 ceramic material. MATERIAL AND METHODS Four ceramic surface treatments were performed. All groups were subjected to the control treatment, which was abrasion with No. 600 silicon carbide paper. The other three(More)
OBJECTIVE It is known that functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and magnetoencephalography (MEG) are sensitive to the frontal and temporal language function, respectively. Therefore, we established combined use of fMRI and MEG to make reliable identification of the global language dominance in pathological brain conditions. METHODS We investigated(More)
