Impact of Brain Shift on Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring with Cortical Strip Electrodes

Abstract

 Background: Intraoperative neurophysiological monitoring has become the standard procedure for locating eloquent regions of the brain. Such continuous electrical stimulation of motor pathways is usually applied by means of flat silicon-embedded electrodes placed directly on the motor cortex. However, shifting of the silicon strip on the cortical surface… (More)
