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)
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)
We present a simple method to record highly reproduciblebinocular electroretinograms in dogs. Rod and cone electroretinograms were elicited in 60 Beagle dogs, with the use of two adjustable photostimulators, one directed at each eye, and maintained in position with the use of a special device. Data analysis revealed no significant differences in amplitudes(More)
BACKGROUND In the eye, melatonin plays a role in promoting light sensitivity at night and modulating many aspects of circadian retinal physiology. It is also an inhibitor of retinal dopamine, which is a promoter of day vision through the cone system. Consequently, it is possible that oral melatonin (an inhibitor of retinal dopamine) taken to alleviate(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)
Confocal scanning laser ophthalmoscope (cSLO) is a new technique which enables ocular fundus image recording and dynamic retinal 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 aim of this paper is to evaluate the feasibility of(More)
BACKGROUND 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(More)
PURPOSE To perform cellular-level in vivo imaging of the feline retina using an adaptive optics flood illumination fundus camera (AO FIFC) designed for the human eye. MATERIALS AND METHODS Cellular-level images were obtained from three eyes of two normal sedated cats. Ocular aberrations were corrected using an AO system based on a 52-acuator(More)
