Monocular deprivation or visual input in the pigeon alters the visual evoked response of the contralateral optic lobe. When the procedure is repeated, and the previously normal eye deprived of light, the responses of both optic lobes change. The EEG did not change with deprivation. The results for aninials deprived of patterned visual input are unclear in terms of both the evoked response and the EEG.
