Objective: Presurgical functional brain mapping is essential for optimized resection planning of eloquently located brain tumors. Functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) has been the most established method for presurgical motor mapping but was shown to have a rather low test-retest reliability,[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
