Development of Infant Contrast Sensitivity Evaluated by Evoked Potentials
Visually evoked cortical potentials were recorded in infants of ages ranging from 2 months to 1 year. Visual acuity, optimal spatial frequency of stimulation, and maximum contrast sensitivity are evaluated as a function of age.
