University Hospitals Neurological Institute will host a live webcast to demonstrate the removal of a brain tumor that doctors believe is causing epileptic seizures in a middle-aged man.

An MRI showed what appears to be a glioma (tumor) near a part of the brain that controls muscle movement, called the motor strip. Studies have shown that complete removal can cure the seizures and improve quality of life and survival, but this is difficult to do with conventional technology without harming the surrounding normal brain because it's difficult to determine where tumor ends and normal brain begins.
