Caption: Neurosurgery for epilepsy. Close-up of an opened cranium of a patient, with brain visible, during neurosurgery to correct epilepsy. At centre is the surface of the cerebrum of the brain; a section of bone of the cranium has been flapped back (top centre). Black sutures are attached to the meninges (membranes) which surround the brain. The gloved hands of the surgeon hold an electrode device to be implanted onto the brain. Epilepsy is a disorder of brain function in which the patient suffers seizures. Loss of consciousness may occur with the body stiffening and twitching, or attacks may be less severe. Treatment with anticonvulsant drugs, although surgery may be successful.
