Neurosurgery provides rare opportunities for learning and better understanding of the brain in ways that are not available in any other field of neuroscience. These opportunities hold unusual promise for future patients and for development of better tools to meet the challenges posed by neurological afflictions. Here, we review neurosurgical procedures suitable for research: electrical stimulation, epilepsy surgery, deep brain stimulation, and brain-machine interfaces.

Keywords:   Penfield, motor cortex, intractable epilepsy, depth electrodes
