A technique for recording the electroretinogram (ERG) from chronically implanted electrodes in animals

Academic Article


  • A technique is described for recording the electroretinogram in monkeys from electrodes surgically implanted in the supraorbital bone. Recordings from these electrodes evidenced response wave-forms which had a high correlation with those recorded simultaneously from a corneal-wick electrode. The technique described should prove to be more convenient than the corneal wick for prolonged recording sessions or repeated measurements from the same animal and also permits recordings to be obtained in an unanesthetized preparation. © 1974.
