Conference paper


The use of chronically indwelling intracerebral electrodes and other devices for the treatment of psychiatric illness [1], investigation of epilepsy [2, and others] and management of neurosurgical patients [3, 4] permit investigation of the local and regional changes of the cerebrovascular system in man.
