The evoked visual responses (see further on) are an even more sensitive means of detecting psychogenic blindness than occipital driving on EEG. Spread of the occipital response to photic stimulation, with the production of abnormal sharp or paroxysmal waves, provides evidence of abnormal excitability (Fig. 2-4B and C). Seizure patterns may be produced during this type of EEG testing, accompanied by gross myoclonic jerks of the face, neck, and limbs (photomyogenic or photomyoclonic response) or by convulsions (photoparoxysmal or photoconvulsive response).

The RF energy that was absorbed and then emitted results in a magnetic signal that is detected by electromagnetic receiver coils. To create contrasting tissue images from these signals, the RF pulse must be repeated many times (a pulse sequence), the signals being measured after the application of each pulse. The scanner stores the signals as a matrix of data, which is subjected to computer analysis and from which an image is constructed. Nuclear magnetic resonance can be detected from several endogenous isotopes, but current technology uses mainly signals derived from hydrogen atoms (1H), because hydrogen is the most abundant element in tissue and yields the strongest magnetic signal.

The images generated by the latest MRI machines are truly remarkable (Fig. 2-2A to C). Because of the high degree of contrast between white and gray matter, one can identify all discrete nuclear structures and lesions within them.
