What is visual electrophysiology?

The Visual Pathway

Above: The visual pathway

When we look at something, we are sending tiny electrical signals from our eyes to our brain. These signals travel along our visual pathways to the part of our brain called the visual cortex. Visual electrophysiology allows us to measure and record these signals in a noninvasive way. In doing this, we ensure that your retina, optic nerve, and visual cortex are working properly by doing Visual Evoked Potentials (VEP) testing.
