Abstract

Pattern Reversal (PR) stimulation is a frequently used tool in the evaluation of the visual pathway. The PR stimulus consists of a field of black and white segments (usually checks or bars) of constant luminance, which change phase (black to white and white to black) at a given reversal rate. The Pattern Electroretinogram (PERG) is a biological potential that is evoked from the retina upon viewing PR display. Likewise, the Pattern Visual Evoked Potential (PVEP) is a biological potential recorded from the occipital cortex when viewing a PR display. Typically, PR stimuli are presented on a Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) or Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) monitor. This paper presents three modalities to generate pattern reversal stimuli. The three methods are as follows: a display consisting of array of Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs), a display comprised of two miniature projectors, and a display utilizing a modified LCD display in conjunction with a variable polarizer. The proposed stimulators allow for the recording of PERG and PVEP waveforms at much higher rates than are capable with conventional stimulators. Additionally, all three of the alternative PR displays will be able to take advantage of advanced analysis techniques, such as the recently developed Continuous Loop Averaging Deconvolution (CLAD) algorithm.
