I just have a question about my VEP report. I went to the hospital yesterday to pick up a copy of my results (my neuro said it was normal but I wanted a copy). First of all they told me that my neuro always comes over and reads his own results but that he never came over to look at mine. Of course that really upset me, how can he tell me in his office that its normal if he never even looked at it? But I won't even get going on that one again.
Anyway, I have a copy of it now in front of me and I do not understand anything on here. Does anyone know how to read these things? What does VEP left lat & amp mean? Or interocular lat diff & amp? Or the last one is Interhemispheric Amp ratio?
This is so confusing and I cant find anything online to explain these thing. Any advice would be helpful.
Clueless here. I understood VEP results to give you a time in milliseconds (or maybe microseconds; I forget) for your brain to react to the visual stimulus. There should be a left and a right time. "Normal" is a round number, but I might get the decimal in the wrong place again. I think it's 100 milliseconds or less. Somewhere on here, Quix answered a VEP question and gave the correct number, which is where what's left of my memory picked up whatever it hasn't dropped!
