Electroretinogram flicker photometry and its applications

Abstract

The electroretinogram (ERG) has been a traditional tool for the measurement and the analysis of spectral sensitivity. With the appropriate choices of stimulus and measurement conditions, the ERG permits a noninvasive examination of photopigment complement and provides the means for studying the combination of spectral signals at various locations throughout the retina. There are a number of practical problems associated with making spectral measurements with the ERG. One approach to minimizing these problems is to exploit the advantages of a flicker-photometric procedure. We summarize a method used to conduct ERG flicker photometry and illustrate a range of problems to which this technique can be successfully applied.
