Entry: stereotaxy (n.)
In context: "Steeply said: 'No? Some sort of radical advance. Stereotaxy. Epilepsy-treatment. They proposed to implant tiny little hair-thin electrodes in the brain.'"
Definition: Interestingly, stereotaxy/stereotaxis appears in the OED, but there's isn't a definition. Let's see what we can find:
stereo (n.): abbreviation of stereoscope n., stereoscopic adj. stereo card n. a card on which are mounted a pair of stereoscopic photographs. stereo pair n. a pair of photographs showing the same scene from slightly different points of view, so that when viewed appropriately a single stereoscopic image is seen.
taxis (n.): A manipulative operation employed for replacing parts which have quitted their natural situation, reducing hernia, etc.
Other: So I'll admit it: today's entry probably wasn't too helpful.
