Objective: Aphasic disorders are common in brain tumours, e.g. which are localized in the left frontal and temporal lobe. In surgery maximal tumour reduction should be achieved while avoiding new aphasic deficit. We detect speech-relevant cortical areas preoperatively using navigated repetitive transcranial[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
