A new approach to mapping the brain could make surgery safer

October 22, 2021

This story originally appeared in the Hub. Doctors performing surgery to remove brain tumors must take care to avoid the brain’s eloquent cortex. Damage to that sensitive area, located in the left temporal and frontal lobe, can be devastating, resulting in impairment of a person’s ability to understand language and, sometimes, even paralysis. Currently, the only […]
