Summary

In this procedure, the provider elevates a portion of skull bone. He cuts the nerve fibers in the outer layer of the cerebral cortex in the subpial space, which is the space underneath the pia mater. Pia mater is the innermost layer covering the brain. During the entire surgery, the provider records the electrical activity of the brain by placing electrodes directly on the cerebral cortex.
