Cerebral Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Multifocal Visual Evoked Potentials in a Patient with Unexplained Impairment of Visual Function: A Case Report

Forskningsoutput: TidskriftsbidragArtikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift

Abstract

We present a case of a young female with a slowly progressing visual impairment who was examined with multifocal visual evoked potentials and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) for underlying neuronal abnormality. The fMRI examination consisted of presenting black-and-white checkerboard stimuli, and her activation patterns were compared to the patterns from 4 normal-sighted subjects. The results showed clear differences in neuronal activation between the patient and the controls in the occipital and parietal lobes. Although we have shown neuronal correlates in a case of unexplained visual loss, it is still an open question as to whether this has an organic or functional cause, which should be the subject for future research.
