Intrasurgical stimulation of the human cerebral cortex – from basic physiology to cognition


Under the supervision of Peter Vajkoczy the cortices of a large number of awake neurosurgical patients are surface stimulated in order to spare movement/speech relevant cortical tissues during surgical intervention. So far, the implications of such stimulation data for basic cortical physiology and cognitive neuroscience are barely evaluated. The current grant proposal brings together neurosurgeons (P. Vajkoczy/K. Faust), basic physiologists (Michael Brecht/Shimpei Ishiyama) and cognitive neuroscientists (John-Dylan Haynes) to investigate what cortical surface stimulation can tell us about cortical physiology and cognitive neuroscience.
