Development of contrast sensitivity in the human infant
Spatial frequency response functions obtained from cat visual evoked potentials.
Development of VEP Vernier acuity and grating acuity in human infants.
The within-subject relationship between VEP Vernier acuity and grating acuity follows the same developmental trajectory established by previous psychophysical studies of humans and monkeys.

The results indicate that the sVEP acuity does not depend on the noise estimation technique and underestimates the logMAR acuity in normally sighted individuals by about an octave.
Stimulus duration, neural adaptation, and sweep visual evoked potential acuity estimates.
The results suggest that there is not a significant change in sweep VEP acuity estimates over an 8-second stimulus presentation, and neural adaptation does not significantly affect the clinical use of the sweep V EP.

A rapid evoked potential index of cortical adaptation.
Contrast sensitivity of the human neonate measured by the visual evoked potential.
Comparison of the neonatal VEP results with behavioral data from 5-week-old infants, suggests little change in visual performance over the first month of life.

The Spatial Selectivity of Early and Late Waves within the Human Visual Evoked Response
Two studies on the amplitude, latency, and waveform of human visual evoked responses to the onset of sine-wave grating patterns were made. Results indicated that the peak latencies of both early and
Temporal and spatial properties of the pattern-reversal VEPs in infants below 2 months of age.
The temporal parameters of the pattern VEP are investigated in infants below 2 months of age in order to establish electrophysiological criteria in detecting developmental changes of the visual pathway in this age range.
Comparisons among Snellen, Psychophysical, and Evoked Potential Visual Acuity Determinations
Correlations between visually evoked response (VER) grating and Snellen optotype acuity levels are poorer than correlations between VER‐ and psychophysically‐determined grating acuity limits, perhaps because of variability inherent in the Snellen task itself.
