Preoperative navigated transcranial magnetic brain stimulation for tumors of the language cortex: clinical application and correlation with intraoperative direct cortical stimulation

S.M. Krieg, N. Sollmann, B. Meyer & F. Ringel
Objective: Navigated transcranial magnetic brain stimulation (nTMS) is a newly evolving technique. For preoperative mapping of the central region good accuracy compared to direct cortical stimulation (DCS) and functional MRI (fMRI) was shown. However, repetitive nTMS can also inhibit specific brain [for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
