SURGICAL ANATOMY OF GYRI & SULCI
Professor Guilherme Ribas University of Sao Paulo, one of the most well-recognised experts in cortical anatomy and author of the book "Applied Cranial-Cerebral Anatomy" will give a series of interactive sessions on the topographic and surgical anatomy of the sulci and gyri and lead the hands-on cadaveric demonstrations of key cortical and sulcal elements.
WHITE MATTER TRACTS ANATOMY
In this interactive hands-on session, Mr George Samandouras will demonstrate the major association, projection and commissural fibres will be dissected in lateral and medial hemispheric surfaces, with an emphasis in demonstrating in a stepwise fashion white matter tracts associated with language; movement; spatial recognition and vision. Applied physiology relevant to direct, electrical stimulation and mapping paradigms will be also discussed.
