He discussed the various visual pathways including magno/parvo processing and their integration with the vestibular and limbic systems leading to their impact on attention and cognition.
CVI can be defined as visual dysfunction caused by damage to, or malfunctioning of, the retrochiasmal visual pathways in the absence of damage to the anterior visual pathways or any major ocular disease.
In a comparative study of the visual pathways in Strigiformes, examining the tectofugal and talamofugal visual pathways, Gutierrez-Ibanez et al.
According to Fromer, "The [study] authors suggest that this [improvement] may be a result of increased blood flow to the retina, visual pathways or [the brain's] cerebral cortex."
Here, a toy model was employed to simplistically investigate the dynamics of coupled visual pathways. Only three neural structures were taken into consideration: retina (represented as a periodic input), LGN, and VC (both represented by Newman-Watts graphs).
PD is a disorder of the motor system in which there is no obvious clinical involvement of the visual system and with no pathological lesions (e.g., demyelination), that are considered major determinants of the delays in conduction in visual pathways [2].
P-VEP is used primarily to measure the functional integrity of the visual pathways from retina via the optic nerves to the visual cortex of the brain.
Neural conduction in visual pathways in newly-diagnosed IDDM patients.
Visual evoked potentials (VEPs) are the evoked potential tests which assess the functional integrity of the visual pathways by recording electrical potential differences from the scalp in response to visual stimuli.
There are cats (especially in the Siamese) congenital squint due to abnormal development of visual pathways between the retina and geniculate body (Kaas and Guillery, 1973).
PVEP is a basic, sensitive, and practical method for assessing impulse conduction through the visual pathways. PVEP abnormalities have been described in DM, but increased P100 latency rate is ranging from 9% to 77% [15-17].
