BACKGROUND The removal of brain tumors in perieloquent or eloquent cortex risks causing new neurological deficits in patients. The assessment of the functionality of perilesional tissue is essential to avoid postoperative neurological morbidity. OBJECTIVE To evaluate preoperative magnetoencephalography-based functional connectivity as a predictor of short- and medium-term neurological outcome after removal of gliomas in perieloquent and eloquent areas. METHODS Resting-state whole-brain… 

Figures from this paper

The impact of high functional connectivity network hub resection on language task performance in adult low- and high-grade glioma.
TLDR
Imaginary coherence measures of functional connectivity using MEG are able to identify HFC network sites within and around low- and high-grade gliomas and may be a useful means of counseling patients about postoperative risk and assist with preoperative surgical planning.
MEG imaging of recurrent gliomas reveals functional plasticity of hemispheric language specialization
TLDR
The majority of patients with glioma experience shifts in language network organization over time which correlate with the relative position of language lateralization and tumor location, and the relationship between the shift in LI and demographics, anatomic location, pathology, and adjuvant treatment was analyzed.
Neural oscillation, network, eloquent cortex and epileptogenic zone revealed by magnetoencephalography and awake craniotomy
TLDR
The early experience using MEG in neurosurgical patients is described, emphasizing on its impact on patient management as well as the enrichment of knowledge in neurosciences.
Alteration of long-distance functional connectivity and network topology in patients with supratentorial gliomas
TLDR
Patients with supratentorial brain gliomas showed decreased long-distance connectivity while increased local efficiency and preserved small-world topology, and the results of this small case series may provide a better understanding of the alterations of functional connectivity in patients with braingliomas across the whole brain scale.
Global and regional functional connectivity maps of neural oscillations in focal epilepsy.
TLDR
Widespread global decreases in functional connectivity are observed in patients with focal epilepsy, and may reflect deleterious long-term effects of recurrent seizures, and enhanced regional functional connectivity at the area of resection may help predict seizure outcome and aid surgical planning.
Lesions in the connected brain: A network perspective on brain tumors and lesional epilepsy
Pharmaco-resistant temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) is often treated with surgical intervention at some point. As epilepsy surgery is considered a last resort by most physicians, a long history of
Changing the clinical course of glioma patients by preoperative motor mapping with navigated transcranial magnetic brain stimulation
TLDR
The data show that HGG patients might benefit from preoperative nTMS mapping, and also show whether these changes also lead to a changed clinical course, and can also be achieved specifically in high-grade glioma (HGG) patients.

TLDR
The method of incorporating functional data into neuronavigation systems is a promising tool that can be used in more radical surgery to cause less morbidity around eloquent brain areas.
Resting functional connectivity in patients with brain tumors in eloquent areas
TLDR
The aim of the present work is to evaluate the value of preoperative magnetoencephalography of functional connectivity to predict the results of intraoperative electrical stimulation mapping, the clinical gold standard for neurosurgical localization of functional areas.
AWAKE CRANIOTOMY FOR BRAIN TUMORS NEAR ELOQUENT CORTEX: CORRELATION OF INTRAOPERATIVE CORTICAL MAPPING WITH NEUROLOGICAL OUTCOMES IN 309 CONSECUTIVE PATIENTS
TLDR
Negative mapping of eloquent areas provides a safe margin for surgical resection with a low incidence of neurological deficits, however, identification of eloquENT areas not only failed to eliminate but rather increased the risk of postoperative deficits.
How do brain tumors alter functional connectivity? A magnetoencephalography study
TLDR
The findings suggest that brain tumors induce a loss of functional connectivity that affects multiple brain regions, and that left side brain tumors have the more severe consequences in this respect.
Synchronized brain activity and neurocognitive function in patients with low-grade glioma: a magnetoencephalography study.
TLDR
The significant correlations between neurocognitive performance and functional connectivity in various frequencies and across multiple brain areas suggest that the observed neuroc cognitive deficits in patients with low-grade glioma can possibly be attributed to differences in functional connectivity due to tumor and/or treatment.
Functional cortex and subcortical white matter located within gliomas.
TLDR
To safely maximize glioma resection in these functional areas, intraoperative stimulation mapping may be used to identify functional cortical or subcortical tissue within, as well as adjacent to, the tumor, thus avoiding permanent injury.
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.
Correlation of functional magnetic source imaging with intraoperative cortical stimulation in neurosurgical patients.
TLDR
Object comparison of intraoperative mapping with preoperative MEG procedures was achieved by intraoperative recording of mapped cortical locations for motor responses using an interactive image-guided surgical device, the ISG viewing wand, with which mapping points could be marked on a previously acquired (MRI) set.

TLDR
Preoperative MS imaging and intraoperative ECM show a favorable degree of quantitative correlation and can be considered a valuable and accurate planning adjunct in the treatment of patients with intraaxial brain tumors.
Functional magnetic resonance imaging mapping of the motor cortex in patients with cerebral tumors.
TLDR
FMRI of tactile, motor, and language tasks is feasible in patients with cerebral tumors and shows promise as a means of determining the risk of a postoperative motor deficit from surgical resection of frontal or parietal tumors.
