Resection of brain tumors in the primary motor area (M1) is difficult to achieve without adversely affecting motor function. Between November 2003 and November 2006, 16 patients with 18 brain tumors involving the M1 (11 metastatic, 6 gliomas, 1 cavernous angioma) underwent craniotomy and awake surgery with continuous motor testing at our hospital. Patients(More)
To research the emotional effects on goldfish shoaling behavior, the change in time spent by the stimulus shoal sizes (0, 1, 2, and 5) was investigated. Consequently, as for shoaling behavior, a difference was seen only in the presence of a shoal, independent of size. The experimental goldfish were then injected with beta-carboline (FG7142,(More)
OBJECTIVES Comparison of preoperative and postoperative neurological functions in patients undergoing resection of brain tumors, in combination with data from diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) studies, can provide direct evidence of anatomical localization of brain function. The goal of the present study was to use these techniques to characterize memory(More)
The functional characteristics of the left inferior longitudinal fasciculus (ILF) remain unclear. The present study describes a case of a right-handed 74-year-old woman with a brain tumor who showed marked deterioration in object naming ability after invasion of the tumor into the medial region of the left posterior (middle and inferior) temporal lobe just(More)
Awake surgery has been reported to play a role in the safe removal of brain tumors and detection of the functional localization of the cortex or neuronal tracts. In our hospital, from November 2004 to May 2007, we performed awake surgery with continuous tasks in 33 cases of brain tumors within or near the primary motor area (M1). The relationship between(More)
This paper describes new methods to plant and grow young crops in arid zones by controlling the water environment of plant using waste biomass. One method is to cover plant leaves by fibrous membrane made of waste paper. Fine fiber coating was made by spraying the starch glue and then dusting the fine paper fibers on the plant leaves. The result showed that(More)
