NBS System draws attention at the 63rd Annual Meeting of the German Society of Neurosurgery

HELSINKI, Finland – June 27, 2012 -- The NBS System was prominent in numerous presentations at the recent 63rd Annual Meeting of the German Society of Neurosurgery (DGNC), in Leipzig 13 - 16 June 2012.

The following abstracts concerned NBS in motor and speech mapping (click on title of abstract to link to full abstract):

Abstracts from presentations at the 3rd International Symposium on NBS in Neurosurgery now published – June 26, 2012

The organizers are pleased to announce that a publication of abstracts of all of the presentations given at the 3rd International Symposium on Navigated Brain Stimulation (NBS) in Neurosurgery is now available. Many of the presentations contained previously unpublished data and we are grateful to the authors for their permission to publish abstracts in this collective format available also to colleagues unable to attend the workshop in person. If you would like a printed copy of the abstracts, please supply your name and the full mailing address of your institution to nbs2012gmailcom.

We also hope this publication will serve to spark your interest in registering for the 4th International Symposium on Navigated Brain Stimulation in Neurosurgery, here in Berlin on Friday and Saturday, 16-17 November, 2012.
