Spectral distribution of the negative potential in the cichlid electroretinogram

, : Spectral distribution of the negative potential in the cichlid electroretinogram. Experientia 37(12): 1299-1300

A negative potential occurring in the ERG of certain cichlid fishes shows a unique set of properties when evoked by monochromatic light. Spectral distributions determined for Cichlasoma octofasciatum and Hemichromis bimaculatus show a blue (460-478 nm) maximum. no Purkinje shift upon light adaptation, and secondary peaks correlated with the species' behavioral preferences in reproduction and parental care.

A negative potential can be evoked in the local electroretinogram of the cichlid fish Cichlasoma octofasciatum by light stimuli of duration longer than 70 msec. This response superficially resembles the proximal negative response, but differs in s...

The relationship between the after-negative potential of the pattern electroretinogram (PERG) and the visually evoked cortical potential (VECP) was studied. The PERG was recorded through the use of Toray's high water content, soft contact len...

The spectral sensitivity curve of the wild type ERG has a red peak around 600 nm and an...
