A method is described which utilizes the recording of somatosensory evoked responses and cortical stimulation to localize the sensorimotor area under general anesthesia. It has been used in 31 patients who had lesions located in or near the somatosensory or motor gyri. Twenty-six of these patients had a tumor, and the remaining five had a tuberculoma,(More)
Recordings were made from single neurons in the hand area of the human motor cortex while peripheral physiologic stimuli were applied. Such cells responded only to active and passive hand movements. Tactile and autditory (click) stimuli were itneffective. The majority of cells were activated only by movements of the contralateral hand, but a significant(More)
One hundred patients with focal epilepsy (44 were children) were evaluated with extraoperative electrocorticography via epidural electrode arrays. Localization of the epileptogenic focus was derived predominantly from recordings made during spontaneously occurring seizures. All resection procedures were carried out under general anesthesia. During(More)
The direct cortical response (DCR), an electrical potential recorded in the immediate vicinity of a surface cortical stimulus, shows a configuration in the primary sensory areas of animals that is different from the one observed in association cortex. This suggested the possibility that systematic study of the DCR in the human brain might reveal a profile(More)
In December, 1980, the authors modified their anterior temporal lobectomies to exclude the amygdala from resection, a decision influenced by the dearth of pathology in the amygdala compared to the hippocampus. Furthermore, it had never been demonstrated that a good result was contingent upon including the amygdala per se in the lobectomy. Fifty-five (79%)(More)
