2. To determine if there is a correlation between hormones levels (cortisol+prolactin) and dreams recall.
3. To investigate whether, in patients receiving auditory stimulation, there is a correlation between hormones levels (cortisol+prolactin), serum remifentanil concentration and detection of implicit memory.
4. To investigate the presence of primary auditory cortex activation (temporal lobe) in patients with implicit memory and in those with dreams recall using the EEG-ERP 128 channels GES300 EGI system.
Patients from group A, during maintenance of anesthesia, at the time of trocar insertion, will listen (via MP3) a piece of one of two stories, "Puss in Boots" and "Pinocchio", each followed by four keywords. In group B, patients will be isolated from the sounds of the operating room using specific headphones.

Laparoscopic surgery is less invasive than open surgery and is now common in various medical fields. However, laparoscopic surgery is more difficult than open surgery and often requires additional tim...
Management of appendicitis has evolved dramatically in the last 120 years, from McBurney's large incision to minimally invasive laparoscopic appendectomy to hardly noticeable incisions with SILS. As...
This review provides a comprehensive comparison of treatment outcomes between robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery (RLS) and conventional laparoscopic surgery (CLS) based on randomly-controlled trials ...
Although laparoscopic surgery uses relatively small incisions, incisional hernia after surgery is not uncommon. However, the incidence of incisional hernia and its risk factors are not well known. The...
The feasibility of a laparoscopic approach in patients who have had a prior laparotomy (PL) remains controversial. We hypothesized that laparoscopic colorectal resection was safe and feasible in patie...
Surgical procedures conducted with the aid of computers. This is most frequently used in orthopedic and laparoscopic surgery for implant placement and instrument guidance. Image-guided surgery interactively combines prior CT scans or MRI images with real-time video.
Procedures that avoid use of open invasive surgery in favor of closed or local surgery. These generally involve use of laparoscopic devices and remote-control manipulation of instruments with indirect observation of the surgical field through an endoscope or similar device. With the reduced trauma associated with minimally invasive surgery, long hospital stays may be reduced with increased rates of short stay or day surgery.

Excision of the gallbladder through an abdominal incision using a laparoscope.
Surgery which could be postponed or not done at all without danger to the patient. Elective surgery includes procedures to correct non-life-threatening medical problems as well as to alleviate conditions causing psychological stress or other potential risk to patients, e.g., cosmetic or contraceptive surgery.
Hearing, auditory perception, or audition is the ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations, changes in the pressure of the surrounding medium through time, through an organ such as the ear. Sound may be heard through solid, liquid, or gaseous mat...
An anesthesiologist (US English) or anaesthetist (British English) is a physician trained in anesthesia and perioperative medicine. Anesthesiologists are physicians who provide medical care to patients in a wide variety of (usually acute) situations. ...
Anesthesia is the loss of feeling or sensation in all or part of the body. It may result from damage to nerves or can be induced by an anesthetist (a medical professional) using anesthetics such as thiopental or propofol or sevoflurane during a surgical ...
