Comprehensive World Brain Mapping Course

image

A renowned, international faculty present advances, advantages and practical issues in contemporary perioperative and intraoperative brain mapping applications in brain tumor and functional neurosurgery.

Join this on-demand, online course for a comprehensive update on brain mapping techniques and indications from the world’s foremost experts in the field. Additionally, case presentations give unique insights into the brain mapping practices at the world's leading institutions.

For the expert, the course offers guidance and perspectives on controversial and innovative practices in brain mapping as it is currently practiced at the leading centers in the world, including yours.  

For the practitioner new to pre- and intra-operative brain mapping, the course is the perfect way to learn the nuts and bolts practice of cortical mapping. Learn the practical aspects of starting a brain mapping program. 

This online course is organized into five sessions covering the breadth of brain mapping practice:

  • Session 1: Functional Anatomy, Physiology and Brain Mapping with Imaging
  • Session 2: Neuroanatomy of Speech and Historical Perspective on Cortical Stimulation Mapping
  • Session 3: Cortical Stimulation Mapping: How We Do It
  • Session 4: Practical Aspects of Cortical Mapping, Discussion of Protocols and Algorithms and Standard and Invited Cases
  • Session 5: Special Topics in Stimulation Research Techniques, the Future of Brain Mapping

Course Directors

  • Mitchel S. Berger, MD, FAANS, University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)
  • Richard W. Byrne, MD, FAANS, Rush University, Chicago
  • Hugues Duffau, MD, Montpellier, France
