PURPOSE To investigate the reproducibility as well as the effect of luminance in multifocal electroretinogram (mERG). METHODS Multifocal electroretinogram recordings were repeated on different days in 6 normal subjects using the Veris III system. The mean luminance of the monitor displaying the stimuli was randomly varied by five kinds of neutral density(More)
PURPOSE To determine the utility of multifocal electroretinograms (mfERGs) in patients with early primary open-angle glaucoma (POAG) with unilateral visual field abnormalities. METHODS mfERGs were recorded from 24 eyes of 12 cases of early POAG (stage I for 1 eye and stage II for the other eye on the Kosaki scale). The implicit times and amplitudes of the(More)
PURPOSE It has been reported that the second-order kernel response components of multifocal electroretinograms (mERGs) reflect the electrical activity of the inner retinal layers. In this study, we have investigated whether the amplitudes of the second-order kernel response components correlate with the spatial distribution of human retinal ganglion cells.(More)
It is difficult to maintain corneal epithelial cells for several passages in culture. At a first step to establish a culture system for corneal epithelium, the authors evaluated factors which seemed to be involved in the growth kinetics and mitotic activity of rabbit corneal epithelium in vitro. First of all, to compare the growth kinetics of peripheral and(More)
PURPOSE To investigate whether the multifocal visual evoked potential (mVEP) is dependent on the electrode position, and to confirm the reproducibility of the mVEP. METHODS The mVEPs were recorded using the Veris III system with two different bipolar electrode settings. In Position 1, electrodes were placed at equal distances in vertical alignment 2 cm(More)
We investigated the relation between multifocal electroretinograms (M-ERGs) and artificial parafoveal scotoma. M-ERGs were recorded from normal subjects using a circular piece of black paper attached to a monitor. Lower response density around the 10 to 15 degree parafovea region was not observed up to 3 degree scotoma (visual angle), but was detected above(More)
