Neurosurgery webcasts at OR-Live December 1, 2006Posted by Johan in Neuroscience.
The Neurophilosopher posted a story which links to google video clip of a complete hemispherectomy – that is, removal of a hemisphere and the corpus callosum. This is plenty cool in itself. I found the originating website, called OR-live, and it turns out that they have a fairly large archive of neurosurgery videos. Unfortunately, they are in Realplayer format, but if you have the connection for it, or if you’re inclined to do some light hacking to save the file to your hard drive, these are well worth watching.
Personally, it mainly makes me happy I’m not a med student. fMRI images give me plenty enough detail, thank you very much. No need to go poking at the stuff.
