Welcome to the 6th and final week of Language Testing during Awake Brain Surgery!

We have nearly concluded this course. During this final week, we will investigate how our patient is doing now, 2 years after the surgery, and will be introduced to another technique to keep track of the language development in the brain.

Moreover, we want to think beyond language testing: one of the most renowned surgeons, Prof. Hugues Duffau in the world will tell us his approach to mapping and what else is crucial to locate in the brain apart from language. We offer you some useful links, in case you would like to continue working on this topic as well!

Dig in one last time with us!
