Researchers are working to accurately locate regions of the brain involved in the making of language. Functional MRI (fMRI) will be used to detect activity in various regions of the brain during tasks performed by patients with brain tumors or epilepsy, as well as normal subjects. The second part of the study is focused on patients being evaluated for epilepsy surgery. As part of the evaluation, they will undergo electrical brain stimulation using the same safety guidelines as used in standard medical care, to closely study the areas of the brain involved in language, movement and vision.
