The human rod receptors can be studied by measuring the leading edge of the rod a-wave of the ERG. Computational models, previously shown to fit the recordings from single rods, are fitted to dark-adapted a-wave responses. A model proposed by Lamb and Pugh [(1992) Journal of Physiology, 499, 719-758] fits slightly better than the traditional models based upon n-stage exponential filters. To test alternative models of rod light adaptation, a-waves were recorded to flashes presented upon steady… CONTINUE READING
