Awake craniotomy (AC) with direct cortical stimulation is becoming the gold standard for functional brain mapping. It is used to identify the safe brain area before pathologic resection. This method indicates the pathology near or at the eloquent cortex, such as gliomas or metastasis. AC can optimize the patient’s quality of life and oncologic outcome.
