The functional approach to the treatment of pediatric brain tumors

Objective: To provide participants with a better and more detailed understanding of the functional neuroanatomy
relevant to tumor localization. Lectures by neurosurgeons, neurologists, neuropsychologists, neurooncologists,
and neuroradiologists will focus on localization-specific aspects of pediatric brain tumors.
