In some cases, tumors infiltrate parts of the brain involved in movement or language. In such cases, functional intraoperative mapping can help identify the exact location of these functions in the brain, enabling the surgeon to avoid these areas and thereby minimize the risk of harm to the patient during surgery. This mapping process often requires that patients remain awake during surgery, especially in the case of speech mapping.
