Zernov called his device an encephalometer. It was a head ring, which was fixed to the patients skull [29, 30].
The pointer of the encephalometer was set over a visible displaced frontal skull fraction and the geodetic coordinates were read and transferred into the 2D cortical map to identify the affected gyrus [28-30].
It was based on the same mathematical principle as the encephalometer, but, instead of a head ring with arcs, it consisted of a helmet in form of a sphere which was fixed to the patient's head and resembled in its mechanical construction the later developed helmet of gamma knife for stereotactic external irradiation.
