Bengaluru man plays guitar as doctors operate on his brain
A 32-year-old techie-turned-musician strummed the guitar on the operation table while surgeons "burned" his brain through a seven hour surgery to correct his dystonia, a neurological disorder, that cramped three fingers on his left hand. To get a real time feedback to ascertain the exact location of the target to be repaired, the patient played the guitar while the doctors "burned" parts of his brain that triggered the abnormal tremors in his muscles. A special frame was fixed to his head followed by an MRI which showed three coordinates of the target area in the brain along with the entry point to the skull and the path to be followed during surgery. Under local anaesthesia, a specialized electrode was passed into the brain following which it was stimulated to confirm the right location and prevent complications.

So if he strums away on the guitar, it is proof that inspite of surgery on the brain matter his faculties are intact.

Vow ! this is interesting. In Gynec most of the surgeries are in spinal - patient fully conscious & hands free. Patients undergoing surgery are a bit scared also. Diverting their attention by whatever way may be useful for the patients.
