ISMRM Workshop on Mapping Functional Networks for Brain Surgery (ISMRM WS11)
|Event Date/Time: Sep 07, 2011||End Date/Time: Sep 09, 2011|
The goal of this workshop is to bring together in a single forum neuroscientists, MR physicists, cognitive neurologists, neuropsychologists, neuroÃ¶ncologists, neuroradiologists and neurosurgeons and to provide a broader view, as well as a detailed information about the current issues involving the functional mapping methods used in surgery of eloquent areas.
Other goals of the workshop are to summarize current knowledge about localization of function in the brain; to describe results of each mapping method that have already been validated; and to address the limitations, the solutions and the challenges of each mapping method.
The application of the new functional mapping methods to the surgery of eloquent areas is indeed an extraordinary opportunity for all neurospecialists to improve their understanding of how each functional network is operating during normal and pathological conditions.
