Electrophysiology of vision and CNS
Research in Electrophysiological laboratories represents at present due to momentary personal cast the only research orientation of the Department of pathological physiology and scientific activities take place in tight collaboration with Department of Biophysics. This research (founded 50 years ago by prof. Jaroslav Peregrin) is oriented toward development of new variants of visual evoked potentials (VEPs) and cognitive brain potentials mainly to various types of motion stimulations and their clinical applications. Long termed systemic work in this field resulted in obtaining three patents that were practically realized in the form of prototypes of the “Mobile device for VEP examination”. This device should extend the diagnostic VEP method also outside specialized laboratories. For the development of this device, we obtained the Marmor award from the International Society for Clinical Electrophysiology of Vision (ISCEV). Activities of this research are supported by Czech and international grants.
