“Direct Electrical Cortical Stimulation: Disrupting the epileptic brain – What can we learn about brain function”

Direct Electrical Cortical Stimulation is used to map cortical functions during awake surgery and chronic intracranial EEG (iEEG) recordings for presurgical evaluation in epilepsy. Although there is lack of standardization across centers, it is considered the gold standard to for mapping of cortical function and to define eloquent cortex. It allows a unique opportunity to gain access to the epileptic brain. In this talk I will show cortical stimulation mapping using grids mainly, illustrating effects and side effects of stimulation mapping and opportunities to define brain function also in less accessible regions such as the medial frontal lobe.
