Immersive Virtual Reality and Ocular Tracking for Brain Mapping During Awake Surgery: Prospective Evaluation Study (Preprint)
TLDR
It is found that it is possible and safe to immerse the patient in an interactive virtual environment during awake brain surgery, paving the way for new VR-based brain mapping procedures.
Preserving Visual Functions During Gliomas Resection: Feasibility and Efficacy of a Novel Intraoperative Task for Awake Brain Surgery
TLDR
An intra-operative Visual field Task (iVT) to monitor the foveal vision, alerting about the likelihood of injuring the OR during task administration, and to inform about the portion of the peripheral field that is explored is developed.
Intraoperative subcortico-cortical evoked potentials of the visual pathway under general anesthesia
Virtual Reality-assisted awake brain mapping. (Preprint)
TLDR
The preliminary experience of extending progressively complex cognitive paradigms via dynamic VR environments during 68 peri-operative brain mapping is described, showing through illustrative cases how VR opens new possibilities for the mapping of complex cognitive functions within the operating theater.
Using a Virtual Reality Social Network During Awake Craniotomy to Map Social Cognition: Prospective Trial
TLDR
With some improvements, VR social networks can be used in the near future to map social cognition during awake craniotomy and discuss its future applications for perioperative mapping of nonverbal language, empathy, and theory of mind.
Optic Tract as an Upper Limit in Amygdalectomy: Microsurgical Study.
TLDR
The microsurgical anatomic path of the OT is described, as a reliable upper limit landmark for amygdala resection, and its superior, inferior, medial, and lateral relationships are highlighted.

Intraoperative subcortical electrical mapping of optic radiations in awake surgery for glioma involving visual pathways.
TLDR
Online identification of optic radiations by direct subcortical electrostimulation is a reliable and effective method to avoid permanent hemianopia in surgery for gliomas involving visual pathways.
The role of awake craniotomy in reducing intraoperative visual field deficits during tumor surgery
TLDR
AC is a safe and tolerable procedure that can be used effectively to map optic radiations and the visual cortices in order to preserve visual function during resection of tumors infiltrating the temporal and occipital lobes.
Functional Monitoring for Visual Pathway Using Real-time Visual Evoked Potentials and Optic-radiation Tractography
OBJECTIVE: It has been difficult to obtain anatomic and functional information about the visual pathway during neurosurgical operations. The aim of this study was to combine the information of the
Intra-operative mapping of the subcortical visual pathways using direct electrical stimulations
TLDR
The possibility to use intra-operative direct electrical stimulation during surgery of lesions involving the posterior afferent visual system, in order to identify and then preserve the visual pathways, as previously reported for sensorimotor and language subcortical fibers, is illustrated.
Preventing visual field deficits from neurosurgery
TLDR
Display of the optic radiation with image guidance reduces the severity of VFD and did not affect seizure outcome or hippocampal resection.
Intraoperative monitoring to preserve central visual fields during occipital corticectomy for epilepsy
TLDR
Intraoperative monitoring of the visual cortex using photic stimulation proved to be a reliable technique for preserving central vision during occipital lobe surgery.
Usefulness of intraoperative electrical subcortical mapping during surgery for low-grade gliomas located within eloquent brain regions: functional results in a consecutive series of 103 patients.
TLDR
The authors used intraoperative real-time cortical and subcortical stimulations as a valuable adjunct to the other mapping methods to optimize the benefit/risk ratio of surgery of low-grade glioma invading eloquent regions.
A method to map the visual cortex during an awake craniotomy.
TLDR
The authors report the case of a patient who underwent an awake craniotomy with mapping of the visual cortex to remove a glioma situated in the left medial occipital lobe.
Awake mapping for low-grade gliomas involving the left sagittal stratum: anatomofunctional and surgical considerations.
TLDR
It is suggested that the use of intrasurgical electrical mapping of the white matter pathways in awake patients opens the door to extensive resection of DLGG within the left SS while preserving the quality of life.
