    Brain stem mapping (BSM) is an intraoperative neurophysiological procedure to localize cranial motor nuclei on the floor of the fourth ventricle. BSM enables neurosurgeon to understand functional anatomy on the distorted floor of the fourth ventricle, thus, it is emerging as an indispensable...
