Single cell experiments in primates show that there are two major parallel pathways named after the lamination in the lateral geniculate nucleus. Each of these systems can be preferentially excited by appropriate stimuli. Here we report that in man the polarity of the evoked potentials both in retina and in cortex depends on which of these pathways is stimulated. The identification of the resulting waveforms is thereby simplified--a matter of practical importance. The fact that at retina and… CONTINUE READING
