  • The review, titled " Laser Interstitial Thermal Therapy for Epilepsy ," was published in the journal Current Neurology and Neuroscience Reports . (epilepsyu.com)
  • The idea first began circulating in the neuroscience community after some split-brain patients exhibited the alien hand syndrome, which led some scientists to believe that there must be two separate consciousnesses within the brain's left and right hemispheres in competition with one another once the corpus callosum is severed. (wikipedia.org)
  • temporal
  • Patients who are diagnosed with epilepsy in the temporal lobe,and who are above 18 years of age,are eligible for the trial. (indianexpress.com)
  • Temporal Lobe Epilepsy (TLE) is the most common type of adult epilepsy and involves multiple brain networks. (jove.com)
  • This sensation has been supported by positron emission tomography, and it has been found that these patients have a high level of activity in their contralateral frontal, insular and temporal regions. (wikipedia.org)
  • acute
  • 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)
  • It was considered the first minimally invasive surgical therapy technique used to treat brain abscesses, replacing the need of craniotomies to treat acute cerebrates. (wikipedia.org)
  • surgery
  • Several specialists are involved in determining if patients might benefit from surgery. (ucdavis.edu)
  • A team of surgeons and specialists are often present in the operating room during surgery to ensure that our patients receive the best care. (ucdavis.edu)

  • For some of these patients, the best option is brain surgery. (epilepsyu.com)
  • Penfield and Jasper also used electrical stimulation during ECoG recordings in patients undergoing epilepsy surgery under local anesthesia. (wikipedia.org)
  • skull
  • Because [MgLiTT] does not require a craniotomy [removal of a portion of the skull], the surgical risk should be less than open resections," they wrote. (epilepsyu.com)
  • 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)
  • subarachnoid hemorrhage
  • Methods- We retrospectively analyzed a prospectively collected database of subarachnoid hemorrhage patients admitted to our institution between 2005 and 2010. (ahajournals.org)
