Contrast sensitivity and visual acuity of the pigmented rat determined electrophysiologically.

Abstract:

The contrast sensitivity function of the rat was assessed by investigating the relationship between the amplitude of visually evoked cortical potentials (VECP) and the spatial frequency and contrast of grating stimuli. Pattern reversal VECPs were recorded in Area 17 in the region of representation of the central binocular visual field. Transient responses were obtained with a 1 Hz contrast reversal. The mean contralateral monocular CSF peaked around 0.1 c/deg, with a threshold sensitivity of ...
