Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery has become a solidly established branch of Neurosurgery, with a continuous progression because of rapidly increasing knowledge in Neuroscience and technological developlemts in imaging and computer graphics.
It is reason to believe that many young neurosurgeons will be excited and strongly attracted by the vigorous developments and advancements expected in Functional Neurosurgery in the next years.
This book arises from the contributions of many leading Italian functional neurosurgeons and neurologists and il aims to provide, in a single source, a relatively comprehensive overview of the main aspects of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery.
