Visual Cortical Evoked Potentials in Alcoholics and Normals Maintained on Lithium Carbonate: Augmentation and Reduction Phenomena
Visual cortical evoked potentials (EPs) have been employed in examining many Psychopathologic and neurologic states in man: assessing intellectual levels of functioning, assessing hemispheric specialization of function, and assessing drug effect, not to mention the enormous quantity of work accomplished in the basic sciences with single-cell and ganglion preparations.
