Course Description

The visual evoked potentials VEP technique is an objective, rapid, reliable, repeatable, and non-invasive method to assess the functionality and integrity of the retinal and early-afferent visuo-cortical pathways. It has been used clinically since at least 1970. In addition, the patients global real-time information can be assessed i.e., VEP amplitude and latency as the time-averaged responses dynamically summate for each specific stimulus pattern. The VEP technique could also be used to investigate integrity of the visual pathways in patients with mild traumatic injury TBI concussion and in patients with multiple sclerosis MS.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Overview of visual evoked potentials (VEP)
  2. Optimized pattern VEP protocols for assessing neurological conditions  
  3. Use of pattern VEP in in patients with mild traumatic injury(mTBI)/concussion and in patients with multiple sclerosis (MS).  
  4. Use of pattern VEP to assess progression of visual-rehabilitation training in patients with mTBI and in patients with MS.  
  5. Future directions
