Aspects of the anatomy and physiology of the cone pathway are known to vary according to the phase of the natural light cycle. Using a prolonged flash stimulus ( approximately 200 ms), we have examined the human electroretinogram (ERG) over a 24 h period. We report that whilst the a-wave of the photopic ERG does not alter, there are profound effects upon the implicit times of both the b-wave and d-wave components. Both components are significantly slower in the night-time period and… CONTINUE READING
