Standard clinical neurophysiological assessment of somatosensory pathways by sensory evoked potentials (SEPs) is limited to the tactile and proprioceptive systems consisting of large fibers in the peripheral nerve, the dorsal columns of the spinal cord and the medial lemniscus in the brainstem. This limitation means that about half of the lesions in the somatosensory system will not be detectable. In recent years, many clinical studies have confirmed that laser evoked potentials (LEPs) allow… CONTINUE READING
