Eighty-eight patients had bilateral intracarotid amobarbital (Wada) testing to determine hemispheric dominance for language in preparation for epilepsy surgery, as well as unilateral extraoperative cortical electrical stimulation using subdural electrode arrays. In none of the patients with left dominance by Wada testing were language areas found with right-sided stimulation, but two patients with right dominance by Wada testing had language areas mapped on the left side. These findings suggest… CONTINUE READING
