Our question is answered; the positional abnormality is scale-invariant - that is, it cannot be thought of in terms of a fixed spatial dimension for any individual amblyope (see also Demanins and Hess, 1996). The neural representation of space is equally disrupted at all scales. 7) in minutes of arc for the normal (unfilled symbols) and fellow amblyopic eyes (filled symbols) of six strabismic amblyopes.

That said, some YEP studies have proved fruitful in understanding which cortical pathways might be affected in amblyopia. For example, Kubova et al. (1996) suggested that the magnocellular (M) pathway might be relatively spared in amblyopia. They used small-check patterns, stimulation being restricted to various parts of the visual field (peripheral Vs central vision, full field Vs foveal). They measured a pattern reversal YEP, where the checks were slowly counterphased at I Hz; and a motion onset YEP, where the checks moved rightwards at 6deg/s.
