Dark adaptation of human rod bipolar cells measured from the b-wave of the scotopic electroretinogram

Cameron, Allison; Mahroo, O; Lamb, Trevor


To examine the dark adaptation of human rod bipolar cells in vivo, we recorded ganzfeld ERGs to (a) a family of flashes of increasing intensity, (b) dim test flashes presented on a range of background intensities, and (c) dim test flashes presented before, and up to 40 min after, exposure to intense illumination eliciting bleaches from a few per cent to near total. The dim flash ERG was characterized by a prominent b-wave response generated principally by rod bipolar cells. In the presence of...[Show more]
