The Axon


Oxford University Press

Evoked potentials (EPs) are electrical waves that can be recorded from the head and boy after stimulation of the sense organs. For over thirty years, EPs of the auditory, somatosensory, and visual modalities have been used to investigate neurological disorders. The techniques for recording EPs are significantly different from those used for recording axonal potentials in vitro. This chapter describes the principal mechanisms by which EPs come to be generated, the techniques used for recording, and some of the areas of neurology to which EPs have been applied, specifically those related to central axonal disorders.

Keywords:   evoked potentials, axonal disorders, axonal potentials, recording, central axonal disorders
