Title:
363 Cortical Plasticity of Motor-Eloquent Areas Measured by Navigated Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation in Glioma Patients. 
Abstract:
Better understanding of the mechanisms behind cerebral plasticity, coupled with noninvasive detection of its presence, harbors a huge potential to improve glioma therapy. Our aim was to demonstrate the frequency of plastic reshaping, find the patterns behind it, and prove that it can be recognized noninvasively using navigated transcranial stimulation (nTMS).We used nTMS to map cortical motor representation in 22 patients with gliomas affecting the precentral gyrus immediately preoperatively, an...    »
