These procedures described for the dog ERG were approved at the 1st European Conference on Veterinary Visual Electrophysiology in Vienna, Austria, May 30, 2000. Dr. Narfström was Chair of the Committee for a Harmonized ERG Protocol, appointed by the European College of Veterinary Ophthalmology (ECVO), and Dr. Ofri was secretary. The other coauthors are(More)
Several strategies have been proposed to restore useful vision following photoreceptor degeneration. However, a very few studies have investigated late anatomical changes and functional state of residual retinal neurons after complete photoreceptor loss. We investigated the progressive degeneration of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) in P23H rats. The RGC(More)
The development of a functional retinal prosthesis for acquired blindness is a great challenge. Rapid progress in the field over the last 15 years would not have been possible without extensive animal experimentation pertaining to device design and fabrication, biocompatibility, stimulation parameters and functional responses. This paper presents an(More)
The i-wave, a post b-wave component of the human photopic electroretinogram (ERG), is claimed to originate at the level of the retinal ganglion cells (RGC) or more distally. We investigated whether this wave is a feature common to all species. Photopic ERGs were obtained from the following species: Beagle dog, European cat, New Zealand white rabbit,(More)
Altricial rodents such as rats and mice are probably the most widely used animal model in the electroretinogram (ERG) literature. However, while the scotopic responses of these rodents share obvious similarities with that of humans, their photopic electroretinograms are strikingly different. For instance, the photopic ERGs of rats and mice include, when(More)
Electroretinography, using laboratory animals, is a commonly used technique for determining the retinal toxicity of chemical agents. In this paper, guidelines for performing this test are provided. The physiologic basis for visual testing is presented with attention to inter-species differences. Technical aspects of animal recordings are reviewed, including(More)
Confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscopy (CSLO) is a new technique that enables ocular fundus image recording and retinal dynamic angiography to be performed. The ocular fundus image is acquired sequentially, point by point, and is reconstructed on a video monitor at the rate of 25 images per second. The feasibility of performing both ocular fundus image(More)
As previously reported in the literature, the electroretinogram (ERG) of the Beagle dog includes a large post b-wave negativity, the origin of which is not yet established. In the course of our investigations on the electroretinogram in dogs, we examined two Beagle dogs (2 years apart) who had one eye devoid of a Tapetum Lucidum (TL). Photopic(More)
Taurine is the most abundant amino acid in the retina. In the 1970s, it was thought to be involved in retinal diseases with photoreceptor degeneration, because cats on a taurine-free diet presented photoreceptor loss. However, with the exception of its introduction into baby milk and parenteral nutrition, taurine has not yet been incorporated into any(More)
Visual electrophysiological techniques, such as electroretinography (ERG) and visual evoked potentials (VEP) can provide useful information on the safety, efficacy, and proper dosing of chemical entities under development as new drug therapies. During post-marketing safety surveillance, a variety of visual electrophysiological measures can be used to(More)
