Title: 3D TRACKING-ASSISTED FUNCTIONAL BRAIN REGION MAPPING
Abstract:
Systems and methods are described for functional brain mapping using neuronavigational equipment and additional features. For example, some implementations described combine novel cortical stimulator tools with stereotactic navigation for three-dimensional position tracking of the cortical stimulator tools. In some implementations, the systems and methods described herein can be used on an awake patient. In some implementations, the systems and methods described herein can be used on a patient that is asleep, via motor evoked potentials (MEPs), phase reversal, or electromyography (EMG) monitoring. Accordingly, in some cases sensory and language regions of the brain can be identified in addition to motor regions.
