Two distinct patterns of visual evoked response asymmetry in human albinism.


Results are presented which confirm that in human albinos each cerebral hemisphere receives a predominantly monocular input from the contralateral eye, giving rise to an asymmetry of the visual evoked potential (VEP) to whole-field stimulation which is similar to that for stimulation of the temporal half-field in the same individual. The further finding of two distinct, and in some respects opposite, types of topographical asymmetry raises the possibility that there are two anatomically distinct variants in the retinocortical projection in human albinism, as there are in the Siamese cat.
