Event info

Michael Sughrue, MD Prince of Wales Hospital The field of connectomics has vastly updated our understanding of neurological anatomy, especially in identifying critical brain network structures that facilitate neurological processes. Such information is crucial for neurosurgeons to inform surgical decision-making. This two-part course explores eight surgical disconnections and trajectories, and how to practically use connectomic information to inform surgical planning. Teaching is conducted through hands-on application of connectomic software and detailed lab exercises.

Part I – Tuesday, May 18, 4 – 7pm EDT
Part II – Tuesday, May 25, 4 – 7pm EDT


  • Gain an understanding of what “connectomic” information is in the context of neurosurgery and how it can be used to inform surgical decision-making
  • Name the major networks involved in common dissections and assess the impact of manipulating them through surgery
  • Gain experience with the location and integrity of brain networks around pathology to plan trajectories that reduce potential deficit
