Eliciting steady-state visual evoked potentials by means of stereoscopic displays
This work evaluates the use of stereoscopic displays for the presentation of SSVEP eliciting stimuli, comparing their effectiveness between monoscopic and stereoscopic stimuli, and proposes a novel method to elicitSSVEP responses exploiting the stereoscopic display capability of presenting dichoptic stimuli.
Steady-State Visual Evoked Potentials Can Be Explained by Temporal Superposition of Transient Event-Related Responses
This study provides evidence that visual SSRs can be explained as a superposition of transient ERPs, and suggests that the oscillatory response of a given neural network is constrained within its natural frequency range.
Robust sensitivity to facial identity in the right human occipito-temporal cortex as revealed by steady-state visual-evoked potentials.
This first observation of habituation of the SSVEP to repeated face identity in the human brain provides further evidence for face individualization in the right occipito-temporal cortex by means of a simple, fast, and high signal-to-noise approach.
A study on dynamic model of steady-state visual evoked potentials
The results showed that the dynamic model had good fitting effect with SSVEP under three pre-stimulation paradigms, and found that pre- Stimulation could be used to adjust the parameters of SSVP model, and had the potential to improve the performance of SSVEp-BCI.
Studying the effect of the pre-stimulation paradigm on steady-state visual evoked potentials with dynamic models based on the zero-pole analytical method
This study explored methods for improving the performance of Steady-State Visual Evoked Potential (SSVEP)-based Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI), and introduced a new analytical method to


Cerebral Potentials evoked by Pattern Reversal and their Suppression in Visual Rivalry
The effectiveness of “pattern reversal” is demonstrated, without change in the total luminous flux, in evoking visual cortical responses and the method is applied to the investigation of binocular rivalry.
Cortical Source Locations of Pattern-related Visual Evoked Potentials recorded from the Human Scalp
Preliminary results are reported which illustrate the great influence of the location of a retinal stimulus on the characteristics of pattern-related VEPs, and indicate how such studies provide clues to the probable location of the sources of different components of these V EPs.
Source locations of pattern-specific components of human visual evoked potentials. I. Component of striate cortical origin
The measured distributions are compatible with the hypothesis that component C. I, but not C. II, originates in striate cortex, from surface negative cortical activity, and an additive relationship was demonstrated between the half-field and the constituent quadrant VEP distributions.
Visual evoked potentials to changes in the motion of a patterned field

The human averaged visual evoked potentials recorded to the onset, reversal and offset of the motion of a visual noise pattern were almost invariant with respect to changes in the brightness, the direction of motion, and the sharpness of the boundary of the visual field.
Topography and homogeneity of monkey V1 studied through subdurally recorded pattern-evoked potentials.
The usefulness of this approach for the non-invasive study of cortical processing, in particular of cortical magnification and receptive-field properties over the central 6 degrees of the visual field, is reported here.

Electroencephalogram Potentials evoked by Accelerated Visual Motion
The effects of changes in the velocity of patterned stimuli are investigated and what seem to be analogous evoked responses to acceleration of the retinal image are found.
Not only can nonlinear system parameters be determined from the experimental results by use of a mathematical theory of linearizing, but even the transfer function of the processes functionally preceding the first nonlinearities can be measured.
