Neurosurgical practice provides rare and direct access to the exposed human brain, which is otherwise safely hidden under the skull and dura. This exposure provides a unique opportunity for both neuroscientific as well as clinical goals, especially when harnessing techniques which have limited transcranial penetrability.
How do we fully harness this potential? Which techniques are currently available or might become available in the near future to seize this opportunity? Read our new paper in Frontiers in Neuroscience to find the answers!
