Pattern electroretinograms after cerebral hemispherectomy.

Abstract:

Cortically blind patients with brain damage restricted to the optic radiations or primary visual cortex may be able to detect and discriminate visual stimuli presented in their field defects, even though they deny seeing them. In contrast, patients who are hemianopic as a result of cerebral hemispherectomy cannot explicitly discriminate visual stimuli in their field defects, even when forced choice procedures are used. A possible explanation for this difference is that retrograde, transneuron...
