OBJECTIVE Numerous somatosensory evoked potential (SEP) studies have provided clear evidence that during repetitive voluntary movement, the transmission of somatosensory afferent information is attenuated. The objective of this work was to determine if this gating phenomenon could persist beyond the period of repetitive movement. METHODS We recorded(More)
PURPOSE OF REVIEW It is estimated that of the 45 million people who are blind worldwide in 2000, 1.4 million are children from middle-income and low-income countries, the majority of whom live in the poorest regions of Africa and Asia.

OBJECTIVE To determine if transient anaesthetic deafferentation of the radial nerve would lead to alterations in processing of early somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) from the median nerve or alter cortico-motor output to the median nerve innervated abductor pollicis brevis (APB) muscle. METHODS Spinal, brainstem, and cortical SEPs to median nerve(More)
PURPOSE To provide a quantitative comparison of the retinal thickness in the macula, with Humphrey visual field (HVF) parameters and circumpapillary retinal nerve fiber layer (RNFL) defects, in glaucoma patients and suspects. PATIENTS AND METHODS Retrospective statistical analysis of spectral domain optical coherence tomography (SD-OCT) compared with HVF(More)
