Eloquent cortex is generally identified using a variety of techniques including direct electrical stimulation to identify motor-sensory, language, and memory cortex and somatosensory evoked potentials to identify motor-sensory cortex. It is important that these areas of cortex be identified so as to prevent damage during the course of neurosurgical procedures. Seventy epilepsy patients undergoing evaluation for epilepsy surgery with chronically implanted subdural grids were retrospectively… CONTINUE READING
