Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery



Aims and Scope

A comprehensive source of stereotactic intervention, neurosurgery technology, and physiology

Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery is the single and comprehensive source of developments in the most rapidly advancing subspecialty within neurosurgery. Technological advances in computer-assisted surgery, robotics, imaging, and neurophysiology are being applied to clinical problems with ever-increasing rapidity in stereotaxis more than any other field, providing opportunities for new approaches to surgical and radiotherapeutic management of diseases of the brain, spinal cord, and spine. The journal publishes advances in the use of deep-brain stimulation, imaging-guided techniques in stereotactic biopsy and craniotomy, stereotactic radiosurgery, and stereotactically implanted and stereotactically guided radiotherapeutics and biologicals in the treatment of functional and movement disorders, brain tumors, and other diseases of the brain. Background information from basic science laboratories related to such clinical advances are also welcome as it provides the readers with an overall perspective of this field. Proceedings and abstracts from many of the key international meetings furnish an overview of this specialty available nowhere else. Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery meets the information needs of both investigators and clinicians in this rapidly advancing field.
