Visual evoked potentials (VEPs) are used to assess visual function in preclinical models of neurodegenerative diseases. VEP recording with epidural screw electrodes is a common method to study visual function in rodents, despite being an invasive procedure that can damage the tissue under the skull. The present study was performed to test a semi-invasive (epicranial) and a non-invasive (epidermal) VEP recording technique, comparing them with the classic epidural acquisition method.

This study aimed to detect the ability of pattern visual evoked potentials to detect visual pathway dysfunction in a cohort of patients with craniosynostosis who also had invasive intracranial pressur...
Invasive fungal sinusitis is a rare but potentially lethal disease that primarily affects immunocompromised patients. The purpose of this study was to review an academic medical center's experience in...
Invasive infections due to Haemophilus influenzae are infrequent following the implementation of vaccination against H. influenzae of serotype b. However, their changing epidemiology may not be clear ...
OBJECTIVEIntraoperative neuromonitoring of the chemical senses (smell and taste) has never been performed. The objective of this study was to determine if olfactory-evoked potentials could be obtained...
To investigate the effect of high-order aberrations (HOAs) on pattern-reversal visual evoked potentials (PR-VEPs), we measured PR-VEPs with HOAs either retained or corrected with an adaptive optics (A...
Taste perception plays an important role in maintaining nutritional balance. Gustatory evoked potentials (GEP) can be detected in response to an intermittent stimulation of the gustatory r...
To lower the threshold for clinical application by reducing the testing time for recording vestibular-evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPs), we evaluated whether a simultaneous recording of o...
The purpose of this study is to determine the feasibility of recording evoked compound action potentials (ECAPs) and somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs) from the spinal cord (SC) and D...
Spine surgery in the prone position (which involves lying face down) is associated with various visual changes, ranging from temporary changes in acuity (or sharpness) to permanent blindne...
The aim of the study is to evaluate effects of current stimulation of the brain on vision parameters, vision-related quality of life, and physiological parameters that allow concluding abo...
The recorded electrical responses from nerve, muscle, SENSORY RECEPTOR, or area of the CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM following stimulation. They range from less than a microvolt to several microvolts. The evoked potential can be auditory (EVOKED POTENTIALS, AUDITORY), somatosensory (EVOKED POTENTIALS, SOMATOSENSORY), visual (EVOKED POTENTIALS, VISUAL), or motor (EVOKED POTENTIALS, MOTOR), or other modalities that have been reported. Often used synonymously to event-related potentials which are associated with higher level cognitive processes.
The electric response evoked in the cerebral cortex by visual stimulation or stimulation of the visual pathways.
Lung infections with the invasive forms of ASPERGILLUS, usually after surgery, transplantation, prolonged NEUTROPENIA or treatment with high-doses of CORTICOSTEROIDS. Invasive pulmonary aspergillosis can progress to CHRONIC NECROTIZING PULMONARY ASPERGILLOSIS or hematogenous spread to other organs.
Somatosensory evoked potentials generated through the application of HEAT to the SKIN with a LASER. They are often used clinically to assess the function of the central nociceptive system and in diagnosing NOCICEPTIVE PAIN.
Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures that are invasive or surgical in nature, and require the expertise of a specially trained radiologist. In general, they are more invasive than diagnostic imaging but less invasive than major surgery. They often involve catheterization, fluoroscopy, or computed tomography. Some examples include percutaneous transhepatic cholangiography, percutaneous transthoracic biopsy, balloon angioplasty, and arterial embolization.
