Abstract:

A summary is given of eight years of investigation of electroretinograms ERG Experimental results lend support to the conclusion that the ERG responses recorded in any particular experimental session are significantly affected by previous experience of the subject. It is indicated that ERG is not an objective, stable measure of visual function. Neither the absolute level of response to a fixed stimulus intensity nor the acuity of discrimination was constant for the observers tested. It is concluded that some kind of learning must be involved in ERG responses. A statistical treatment of the evidence is presented. Author
