A brief review of magnetic fields from the human visual system

Richard A. Armstrong, B. Janday

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Both the eye and brain generate magnetic fields when stimulated with a variety of visual cues. These magnetic fields can be measured with a magnetometer; a device which uses superconducting technology. The application of this technique to measuring the magnetooculogram, magnetoretinogram and visually evoked fields from the brain is described. So far the main use of this technique has been in pure research. Its potential for diagnosing ocular and neurological diseases is discussed.
