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

Enrollment: 1
Study Start Date: March 2009
Study Completion Date: June 2009
Primary Completion Date: June 2009 (Final data collection date for primary outcome measure)
Arms Assigned Interventions
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

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.

Sexes Eligible for Study:   Female
Accepts Healthy Volunteers:   No

Inclusion Criteria:

  • Diagnosis of incidental meningioma
  • Single subject preparing to receive neurosurgical intervention

Exclusion Criteria:
