The activation and recovery phases of the murine rod photo-response were determined from corneal electroretinograms (ERGs) obtained in response to pairs of full-field flashes producing 50-10(5) photoisomerized rhodopsins (R*) per rod. The a-wave component of the ERG in response to the initial flash provided a well established measure of the activation phase of the rod response. The amplitude of the a-wave response to an intense second flash (45,000 R*) delivered 0.2-5 seconds (s) after the… CONTINUE READING
