The oscillatory potentials (OPs) of the mudpuppy ERG were studied to evaluate the effects of GABA and glycine antagonists. Upon exposing the retina to bicuculline and picrotoxin, blocking agents of the putative inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA, all the OPs were selectively abolished. The earlier OPs (01-03) appeared more sensitive to the drug than the latter ones (04-05). There was no appreciable effect on the range of sensitivity and saturation level of the b-wave. Low concentrations of… CONTINUE READING
