  • patient's
  • The computer then calibrated the system with the individual patient's specific brain wave, and when the patient then focused on a letter, the letter appeared on the screen. (scienceagogo.com)
  • In stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS), the word "stereotactic" refers to a three-dimensional coordinate system that enables accurate correlation of a virtual target seen in the patient's diagnostic images with the actual target position in the patient. (wikipedia.org)
  • cerebral cortex
  • The (ICE) component comprises a catheter with platinum sensors that, when inserted into the brain allows for recording directly from the cerebral cortex of patients with acute brain injury. (wikipedia.org)
  • spatial
  • In which case the spatial resolution is down to individual neurons, and the field of view of an individual electrode is approximately 0.05-0.35 mm. (wikipedia.org)
  • The number of electrodes necessary and their exact spatial arrangement is often determined in the operating room. (wikipedia.org)
  • signals
  • In the study, the two patients sat in front of a monitor that was hooked to a computer running software which was designed to interpret electrical signals coming from the electrodes. (scienceagogo.com)
  • researchers
  • The researchers say it isn't yet known how many electrodes would have to be implanted. (scienceagogo.com)
  • The researchers are testing the approach in six Alzheimer's patients in a Phase 1 safety study. (blogspot.com)
  • Minimal occlusion was achieved, but the researchers discovered that the erosion of the electrode due to electrolysis would be useful as a detachment system. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgeon
  • The craniotomy begins with a surgeon removing an area of the skull over the tumor and cutting into the meninges, the membranes that protect the brain. (wikipedia.org)
  • If an area is stimulated and the patient moves or loses some ability, like speech, the surgeon knows that the area is vital and cannot be removed or cut through to access a tumor. (wikipedia.org)
  • In order to access the cortex, a surgeon must first perform a craniotomy, removing a part of the skull to expose the brain surface. (wikipedia.org)
  • Therefore, the approach for the individual patient does not only depend on the specific localization of the epileptogenic area, but also on the experience of the surgeon. (neurosurgery-blog.com)
  • The ability of the patient to stay calm and give responses to the surgeon is highly essential. (brain-surgery.com)
  • placement
  • The IPG is programmed by the neurologist based on the specific disease condition of the patient, and the placement of DBS requires regular follow-ups for programming the IPG based on the disease condition, if needed. (targetwoman.com)
