On the day of the surgery the first thing they do is screw a Darth Vader-type frame to your skull so you can't move your head. I particularly remember the noises: when they drilled the holes and scraped the skull, and I'm convinced I heard whale music. One phrase stands out, too: "You may feel some tugging - we're going to go through the membrane of the brain."
