About this Item

Neuware - Soon it will be time for me to retire from my position as professor of o- thalmology in the Department of Ophthalmology, Nagoya University School of Medicine. I have therefore decided to summarize my expe- ence of more than 30 years of studies on the clinical electrophysiology of vision. These studies were performed in our department through the hard work and good ideas of many co-workers,and the chapters of this book cover the rationale and results of our studies. Because excellent textbooks on clinical electroretinography already exist, my wish is not to write another textbook; instead,this book is in the form of essays that include my beliefs and philosophy on the clinical electrophysiology of vision. As such,this book does not include every clinical disease but only those that we have identi ed or studied in detail. In addition to full- eld electroretinography (ERG),we developed the techniques and instrumentation to record focal macular ERG more than two decades ago. Using these techniques, we were able to determine several new physiological properties of the normal macula, many new pathophysiological mechanisms of known diseases,and some new cli- cal entities with unique functional properties. Fortunately,the recent advances of macular surgery and imaging are such that the macular con guration can easily be determined. During the process of surgery,we have obtained considerable information on the c- relation of macular function and macular morphology using focal macular ERGs and optical coherence tomography (OCT). 234 pp. Englisch.

About this title

Synopsis:

This groundbreaking work presents techniques of electrodiagnosis and developments in electrophysiology in relation to other ocular findings as the author summarizes his extensive experience and knowledge of visual electrophysiological testing, the most definitive objective test of macular function. This book is the first to combine retinal physiology, morphology, and vitreoretinal surgery, and includes new findings in normal-macula physiology, newly discovered pathophysiological mechanisms of known diseases, and new clinical entities with unique functional properties. Also described is the correlation of macular function and macular morphology using focal macular electroretinography and optical coherence tomography obtained in surgery. This valuable resource enables researchers and clinicians to better understand the principles and methods of current techniques of visual electrophysiology and the pathophysiology of retinal diseases.
