Summary

An on-line computer programme is described and illustrated whidK is capable of displaying graphically in the form of Woolsey-type figurine charts stimulation-induced responses obtained during stereotactic surgery. Not only can these data then be optimally utilized for lesion localization but also the programme includes facilities for a variety of types of analysis of the tape-stored data pooled from all patients studied.
