We work together with the Sylvius project: a map to reach our brain

The SYLVIUS Analysis Workstation is a 3D stereoscopic computer platform that helps surgeons map and navigate the brain.

Thanks to this support neurosurgeons can operate with more precision and less risk.

Hospital del Mar and its research institute (Instituto Hospital del Mar de Investigaciones Médicas or IMIM), in collaboration with the "la Caixa" Foundation, are carrying out this project that will allow doctors to record, simultaneously, all the areas of the brain that perform basic functions.

They will therefore be able to produce a map of all the areas involved in language, minimising risks at the same time as carrying out surgery on the brain and improving pre-surgery planning.
