Visual evoked potentials (VEPs) were recorded to textures segregated by gradients in orientation or motion. Recordings were obtained in traumatic brain-injured (TBI) subjects and in normal controls. We analyzed both the low-level VEPs (llVEPs) evoked by homogenous stimuli, as well as the components associated with texture segregation (tsVEP) obtained(More)
PRIMARY OBJECTIVE To evaluate low-level to complex information processing using visual electrophysiology and to examine the latter's prognostic value in regards to vocational outcome in persons having sustained a mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). RESEARCH DESIGN/METHODS Event-related potentials (ERPs) were recorded to pattern-reversal, simple motion,(More)
Orientation is one of the visual dimensions that subserve figure-ground discrimination. A spatial gradient in orientation leads to "texture segregation", which is thought to be concurrent parallel processing across the visual field, without scanning. In the visual-evoked potential (VEP) a component can be isolated which is related to texture segregation(More)
The auditory brainstem response has been used in neonates at risk of hearing impairment or as a functional measurement of brain maturity. The goal of the present study was to evaluate the auditory brainstem response in small-for-date newborns, in relation to changes observed with fetal maturity in a control group. Compared to controls with similar maturity,(More)
A 22 year-old man died from multiple cerebral abscesses due to Petriellidium boydii 4 1/2 months after an episode of near drowning. The autopsy showed dissemination to heart and kidney. This patient had no immunocompromising disease but was treated with corticosteroids. The treatment of this condition with ventricular shunting and amphotericin B is(More)
