Maximum resection and preservation of neurological function are main principles in surgery of brain tumors, especially glial neoplasms with diffuse growth. Therefore, exact localizing of eloquent brain areas is an important component in surgical planning ensuring optimal resection with minimal postoperative neurological deficit. Functional MRI is used to localize eloquent brain areas adjacent to the tumor. This paper is an initial stage in analysis of resting-state fMRI in assessment of functional changes of neuronal activity caused by brain gliomas of different localization. We report two patients with glial tumors localized within the precentral gyrus of the left hemisphere and near speech area. Considering data of task-based and resting-state fMRI, as well as direct cortical stimulation, we propose a methodology for assessing the overlap of activations obtained by these methods.
