Yanmei Tie Works to Prevent Language Loss in Brain Surgery Patients

“Patients can have brain tumors located very close to language areas. Surgeons want to know where these functional tissues are, so that they don’t damage them when they go in and remove the tumor,” Tie said. “Some of these tumors can result in patients having low rates of survival. It would be really devastating if, even though the tumor is gone, the patient now can’t talk.”
