The final ten years has witnessed a resurgence of curiosity in stereotactic surgical procedure even though this has been quite often within the box of the relatively uncomplicated stereotactic biopsy of intracranial tumours. there's additionally proof of a returning curiosity in useful neurosurgery except soreness which has continuously sustained excessive degrees of endeavour. the current paintings includes chosen papers from a miles higher team of attention-grabbing and demanding communications to the ecu Society for Stereotactic and sensible Neurosurgery. They signify sleek perspectives on a wide selection of stereotactic surgical themes from the world over acclaimed specialists during this box. The neurosurgeon who has very little acquaintance with this fruitful sub-specialty should be shocked to discover very huge purposes of the procedure that is progressively exchanging many con­ ventional neurosurgical approaches. this is often rather glaring within the papers on tumours yet there's additionally a piece at the remedy of vascular ailment which marks an extension of neurosurgical perform. The Society has continuously seemed technical advances as vital and a few of the latest devel­ opments look during this booklet. ultimately, a thrilling new improvement of neural transplantation marks the start of what should be an incredible a part of neurological surgical procedure within the future.

Introduction The determination of the exact target site of stimulation in the cerebellum is crucial for effective therapeutic stimulation and understanding of cerebellar functions in cerebral palsy. Motor responses to elec- Fig. I. The CT midline sagittal reconstruction. The trajectory towards target point in the BCC (arrow) trical stimulation in various subcortical regions of the anterior lobe of the cerebellum in relation to the site of stimulation were investigated. The role of the computerized tomography (CT) scanner is helpful in this respect.

Naturally, we collected most of the pathological signs in this third part which was also most interesting from the point of view of the normal motor system. The expression of the different periods of the elicited event and its sensitivity to the ongoing motor function depends on the site of the stimulation. To study this sensitivity we investigated evoked potentials and motor modulation during a simple motor event, which means, during preactivity rest, increasing contraction of a given muscle to a certain level, sustained contraction and during contraction release.

In this case through a laparotomy the right adrenal gland was removed and stored in oxygenated Collins and bicarbonated Ringer solution mixtures while a F 2 trans ventricular approach to the head of the caudatum was done. With the surgical microscope the medullary part of the adrenal gland was dissected and four pieces ofmm3 of tissue selected, implanting them in a bed previously carved in the caudatum. Endocrinologic and hydroelectrolytic problems appeared during the immediate postoperative period.
