Under steady conditions of illumination, the resting potential maintains a constant value called the baseline potential, but it will vary with changes in illumination. 2 – Origin of the various components of the electrophysiological recordings in relation to morphological sites of the retina (modified after Apfelstedt and Zrenner 2007) Anatomic Structure Electrophysio­ logical Potential Clinical Test Retinal pigment epithelium and photoreceptor outer segments Ocular resting potential Electrooculogram (EOG) Rod outer segments Rod a-wave Scotopic flash ERG Cone outer segments Cone a-wave Photopic flash ERG Rod ON-bipolar cells Rod b-wave Scotopic flash ERG Cone ON-bipolar cells Cone b-wave Photopic flash ERG Rod OFF-bipolar cells Rod off-effect Scotopic long duration flash ERG Cone OFF-bipolar cells Cone off-effect Photopic long duration flash ERG Müller’s glial cells Rod and cone b-wave Scotopic and photopic flash ERG Inner plexiform layer and especially amacrine cells Oscillatory ­potentials Scotopic flash ERG, with special filtering Ganglion cell layer N 95 potential Pattern ERG Posterior pole, cones, bipolar cells and amacrine cells Local retinal ­potential tracings Multifocal ERG Retinocortical ­conduction time Latency Visually evoked potentials (VEP): pattern VEP Primary visual cortex and the cone dominated portion of the ­afferent pathway ­(central visual field) P100 amplitude, P2 amplitude Pattern VEP, flash VEP of the RPE to light-induced shifts in ion concentrations in the ­ extracellular fluid of the photoreceptor, induced by the ­activation of the phototransduction process in response to illumination of their outer segments.

In this threedimensional representation of the multifocal ERG, the fovea shows the largest response density because of the high cone photoreceptor density in this region. At the left of the peak is a depression in amplitude, indicating the physiologic blind spot. Usually the electrical map of the multifocal ERG represents a retinal area around the foveola with a radius of 25–30°. The amplitude of the pedestal at the borders of the response density array therefore reflects the activities of the retinal eccentricity up to 25–30°.
