Abstract : A recent study produced by our friends at the Vattikuti Institute of Robotic Surgery, King’s College London, has been honored as the BJUI Article of the week (for 12-19-2018). Cognitive training for technical and non‐technical skills in robotic surgery: a randomised controlled trial, discusses the results of a study comparing novice surgeons which were placed into groups to receive motor imagery (MI) for technical skill and non‐technical skill (NTS) training in minimally invasive surgery following basic robotic surgery training.
