We demonstrate that a RGB camera and a continuous wave white light illumination is a suitable approach to intraoperatively localize in real time the sensory and motor areas of the patient brain. The analysis of the reflectance spectra of the acquired light and Monte Carlo simulations allow us to measure the concentration changes of oxygenated and deoxygenated hemoglobin during the video acquisition. These measures are compared to the expected hemodynamic response to precisely localize the functional areas of the patient brain.
