I am just wondering if it would be possible for a brightly colored patterned snake such as some of the milkshakes to induce an episode of PSE (photosensitive epilepsy) in an epileptic?
Thanks for the reply. I am not an epileptic btw but thought of this scenario of when I was at a Repticon show for the first time with tables of various color morph corns, milks, and kings. My mind was doing donuts processing all the colorsLow frequency oscillation, flickering, is the most common visual trigger of PSE which would be unusual for a snake to reproduce. Of course, anything may trigger an episode and what may be a trigger should be worked out between the individual and an expert. Like many other tests of suspected triggers it wouldn't be all that difficult to have a suspect animal present during an EEG session.
