Edited By Byron L. Lam Copyright 2005

    Written by an experienced clinician and researcher in the field, this reference provides practical information on the clinical recording techniques, physiologic origins, and applications of electroretinogram (ERG), electro-oculogram (EOG), and visual evoked potential (VEP) tests.

    "…Byron Lam has succeeded with his book in presenting the whole field of clinical electrophysiology in a comprehensive way, while simultaneously his presentastion reaches the depth and intensity that is necessary for the understanding of this complex matter….Without any hesitation, this book can be recommended to anyone who is interested in electrophysiology of
    vision; to ophthalmologists who are not greatly involved in the matter but want to learn more on electrophysiology than what is usually presented in textbooks on ophthalmology. Because of its completeness, the book can be also recommended to ophthalmologists or neurophysiologists already working in the field."
