Conference paper


Evoked potential recordings are widely used for evaluation of the central nervous system status. They seem to be particularly useful in evaluating spinal cord function in acute and chronic spinal cord lesions (Wise 1984, Rowed 1982, Greenberg and Ducker 1982). Moreover, SEP have been proved to be an early detector of disturbances of spinal cord function during surgeries (Schramm 1985).
