Objective: Tumours located in the motor cortex pose a challenge to all neurosurgeons. The path between the greatest possible resection and postoperative paresis may be very narrow. For preoperative assessment of eloquent cortical areas fMRI is used, whereas intraoperatively direct cortical stimulation[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
