Because of the horizontal separation of both ocular globes, the projection angles are slightly different. These differences are commonly termed retinal disparities. Vertical and horizontal retinal disparities occur constantly in normal life. We have investigated the responses of single cells in cortical areas V1 and V2 of behaving Macaca mulatta monkeys to(More)
Stereoscopic vision is based on small differences in both retinal images known as retinal disparities. We investigated the cortical responses to retinal disparities in a patient suffering from occipital epilepsy by recording evoked potentials to random dot stereograms (RDS) from subdural electrodes placed in the parieto-occipito-temporal junction, medial(More)
The differences between the two monocular receptive fields of cortical cells were measured and compared to their disparity tuning in the awake behaving monkey. Several receptive field properties (direction selectivity, orientation preference, eye preference and response modulation) were determined for each eye using sweeping bright bars. The disparity(More)
1. The main aim of the present series of experiments was to demonstrate with electrophysiological methods that the spinothalamocortical system may send somesthetic information to the pyramidal and corticospinal tract cells in the motor cortex of the cat. 2. Experiments were carried out on acutely prepared cats anesthetized with alpha-chloralose. Extra- and(More)
Comparable short latency somaesthetic responses have been observed in the red nucleus and the motor cortex. Since previous experiments showed that a ventral spinal ascending pathway could account for red nucleus responses, the present experiments were designed to establish whether the same pathway could also transmit the short latency peripheral inputs to(More)
Electroretinogram (ERG) changes with age have been studied widely, but there is no general agreement about the age at which ERG parameters reach adult values. We studied 296 eyes from 148 healthy subjects, divided into 14 age groups, ranging from 1 week to 21 years. Although most of the maturational changes or ERG take place during the first six months, the(More)
OBJECTIVE To establish clinical guidelines for the clinical use and interpretation of motor evoked potentials (MEP) in diagnosing and monitoring patients with multiple sclerosis (MS). Recommendations for MEP use and interpretation will help us rationalise and optimise resources used in MS patient diagnosis and follow up. METHOD We completed an extensive(More)
BACKGROUND Myoclonus-dystonia syndrome (MDS) is an autosomal dominant movement disorder caused by mutations in the SGCE gene. MDS is characterized by mild dystonia and myoclonic jerks, and a constellation of psychiatric manifestations. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of bilateral internal globus pallidus (GPi) has recently been introduced as a new and(More)
To investigate the hemifield dependence of visually evoked responses to colour in the human fusiform gyrus we recorded evoked potentials from subdural electrodes in a patient suffering from occipital epilepsy. The responses in the fusiform gyrus show a strong hemifield dependence and discriminate the onset from the offset of the stimulus. Additionally, we(More)
