Answer

Answer

Electroencephalography in central pontine myelinolysis may demonstrate diffuse bihemispheric slowing. Brainstem-evoked potentials may reveal abnormalities when neuroimaging is unrevealing.

Relative preservation of axons and surrounding neurons within areas of demyelination and an associated reduction in oligodendroglia is present.
