Visual evoked potentials (VEPs) to checkerboard stimuli are often recorded to evaluate the functional visual nervous system from the eye to brain. For example, various types of VEPs have been used for the early detection of multiple sclerosis (MS) [Harter, 1970,Chiappa, 1983,Andersson and Siden, 1991,Towle et al., 1991, Hood and Zhang, 2000]. MS is a central nervous system (CNS) disease, characterized by multiple areas of demyelination [Robinson and Rudge, 1977, Waxman, 1983]. People suffering from MS often develop optic neuritis (ON) as well.
