Awake brain mapping

It consists in the application of an intraoperative electrical stimulus in the cerebral cortex and the subcortical white matter to identify, intraoperatively, some cerebral functions. It is indicated in brain-tumor surgery and other disorders in which the surgery must be performed in brain areas that are considered eloquent and related with language, movement or vision. The aim of performing a brain mapping is to identify and preserve these eloquent areas of the brain in order to reduce the risk of neurological deficits. Awake brain mapping makes the surgery safer for the patient.
