Thirty-six subjects found to have a photoconvulsive electroencephalographic response to flashing light were studied systematically for monocular sensitivity. Thirteen had the abnormal response only if both eyes were stimulated. Eight were equally sensitive with one as with both eyes. Fifteen subjects had reduced or variable response with only one eye stimulated.
