Brief Summary:
The study examines and illustrates the utility of utilizing actigraphic measurements to assess treatment response.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment
Sleep Disorders Circadian Rhythm Pain Rehabilitation Mood Lability Procedure: Re-section of a large left anterior cranial fossa meningioma

Detailed Description:
Actigraphic measurements, repeated verbal fluency and multi-symptom operationally defined observations will be recorded for an 11 to 12 day baseline period and continued following neurosurgical tumor resection until a repeat MRI is completed three months after the procedure.

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Actigraphic Neurosurgical Outcomes
Actigraphic measurements that will be obtained by attaching the actigraphic watch device to the individual's non-dominant wrist and operationally defined repeated observational measurements. All measurements will continue through a baseline period and continue through the identified post surgical period. Actigraphic measurements will occur every 30 seconds with brief periods of non-measurement during the actual neurosurgical procedure and periods when the actigraphic device has reached storage capacity (approximately every 22 days) when data is retrieved and the device prepared resume measurements.
Procedure: Re-section of a large left anterior cranial fossa meningioma
Neurosurgical re-section of an incidental large left anterior cranial fossa meningioma
Other Name: Actigraphy

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Pre and Post Actigraphic and Systematic Observation Scale measurements [ Time Frame: March 15, 2009-June 20, 2009 ]
