Abstract

Visual evoked potential contrast adaptation was measured in normal subjects using a real-time-retrieval swept contrast analysis. Results demonstrated orientation specific adaptation suggesting a cortical locus. Conditions which disturb cortical inhibition (i.e., epilepsy and dopaminergic agents) altered this adaptation effect.
