Precise localization of eloquent cortex is a clinical necessity prior to surgical resections adjacent to speech or motor cortex. In the intraoperative setting, this traditionally requires inducing temporary lesions by direct electrocortical stimulation (DECS). In an attempt to increase efficiency and potentially reduce the amount of necessary stimulation, we used a passive mapping procedure in the setting of an awake craniotomy for tumor in two patients resection. We recorded… CONTINUE READING
