Anatomical measurements of the cervical pedicle in a large series of human cervical vertebrae from 48 individuals were obtained to reduce the incidence and severity of complications caused by transpedicular screw placement. The greatest pedicle length was at C-3 and the greatest pedicle width was at C-6. Pedicle width and lateral mass thickness gradually(More)
A neuromorphic approach to the analysis of monaural and binaural auditory signals is presented. Several aspects of the mammalian auditory system, including the cochlea, are modeled and then applied to engineering problems such as auditory feature extraction and source localization. In the case of auditory feature extraction, the spectral response fields of(More)
OBJECTIVE To present the incidence, morphology, and the relationships of the accessory head of the flexor pollicis longus (Gantzer`s) muscle (AHFPL) in a recent Turkish population. METHODS The study was performed on 52 upper extremities of 26 adult Turkish cadavers in the Department of Anatomy, Ege University Faculty of Medicine, Izmir, Turkey in 2005. In(More)
The topographic anatomy and morphometry of the fornix is important for standardizing the transcallosal-interforniceal approach and avoiding memory disturbances. The detailed morphometry of the fornix was investigated with a special emphasis on sex differences using midsagittal magnetic resonance imaging of 80 males and 102 females. Various parameters of the(More)
In this study we present the incidence of caroticoclinoid foramen and interclinoid osseous bridge and some topographic aspects regarding the clinoidal internal carotid artery (ICA) in a recent Turkish population to provide a guide for neurosurgeons in any surgical approach, especially to the cavernous sinus. One hundred nineteen adult dry skulls and 52(More)
The anterior third ventricle region acquires clinical significance in benign and malignant tumors and cyst formations, of which craniopharyngiomas and gliomas are the most common. The subfrontal approach is one of the most preferred approaches for removing these tumors. In this study, the microsurgical anatomy of 81 Turkish, adult cadaveric hemispheres was(More)
OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to present the morphometry and pneumatization of the sphenoid sinus in detail for the neurosurgeon for transnasal approach to the hypophyseal tumors and especially for functional endoscopic sinus surgery. METHODS One hundred and eighty midsagittal magnetic resonance images, 48 bones and 29 hemi-sectioned cadaveric(More)
The transcallosal-interforniceal approach is the most appropriate approach to localize and totally remove space-occupying lesions around the anterior third ventricle region such as craniopharyngiomas and gliomas. This study examined the microsurgical anatomy of the normal anterior third ventricle region in 81 adult cadaver hemispheres. The central sulcus(More)
OBJECTIVE Variations in the shape and size of the cerebral falx can embarrass the surgical treatment of lesions in and around the falx. In this study, anatomy and morphometry of the cerebral falx in adult cadaveric specimens were examined to enable easy approach during surgery. METHODS Fifty-two adult cadaver cerebral hemispheres with dura from the(More)
