    Gliomas are a type of brain tumours that are often infiltrated in crucial language areas. In order to diminish post-operative impairments, preservation of linguistic functions is monitored using direct electrical stimulation during awake surgery. Not only can essential and mediating structures be clinically distinguished with this procedure, but also does it provide an excellent tool to inspect neuropsychology of language and its fundamental underlying mechanisms. My research focuses on pre-, intra- and post-surgery assessment of the crucial and complex processes of reading and writing in glioma patients who undergo awake surgery.
