1 The Scotopic ERG Response A dim flash of light below the sensitivity threshold for cone photoreceptors stimulates only the rods in a dark adapted eye. An electrode placed on the cornea records the changing electrical potentials of the cells in the retina.

2 The Scotopic ERG Response A flash of light stimulates both rod and cone photoreceptorsin a dark adapted eye. An electrode placed on the cornea records the changing electrical potentials of the cells in the retina.

3 Multifocal electroretinogram (mfERG): records focal responses from several locations in retina simultaneously primarily tests middle and outer retinal layers
