Drummer Eddie Cleland Resumes Life After Brain Surgery and Tells About it at Conference

emotor area is where the thought originates to initiate movement. Activation of the premotor area results in activation of the motor area.

"We know that if we remove a tumor in the premotor area, about 80 percent of patients will wake up with some significant weakness, but about 90 percent of those patients will completely recover because this area can be reprogrammed and retrained very quickly," Black said. "This brings up a very important trade-off.

"The first rehearsal was brutal. It was horrible - like a 5-year-old," said Cleland, who will celebrate his 46th birthday on May 30. "The funny thing was, the next day, when I went back to therapy, my brain was working 10 times better. Answers to problems were coming quicker and I was doing better on the tests."

With each rehearsal, he improved dramatically. "I had my physical therapy, my speech therapy and my music therapy," he said.

Cleland will describe his experience during the one-day "Outsmarting Brain Tumors," a free community conference for patients, families and caregivers, Saturday, June 13. Physicians, neurosurgeons, research scientists and other brain tumor survivors will participate in the program, which will be held fro
