April Flowers for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online A new study led by Drexel University has found a common, low-cost ophthalmological tool can measure the brain’s pleasure response to tasting food through the eyes. If the results are validated, this method could have applications for research and clinical work in food addiction and obesity prevention. The study testing the use of electroretinography (ERG) to indicate increases in the neurotransmitter dopamine in the retina, was led...

Members of a University of Pennsylvania research team have shown that they can prevent, or even reverse, a blinding retinal disease, X-linked Retinitis Pigmentosa, or XLRP, in dogs. The disease in humans and dogs is caused by defects in the RPGR gene and results in early, severe and progressive vision loss. It is one of the most common inherited forms of retinal degeneration in man. "Every single abnormal feature that defines the disease in the dogs was corrected following treatment,"...

Electrooculography
2012-12-31 11:47:45

Electrooculography, sometimes shortened to EOG, is the tracing of electricity used for operation of the retina in different phases, specifically the resting potential. The results are recorded on an electrooculogram. These are interpreted for opthalmological diagnosis and in recording eye movements. Eye movement measurements: Usually, pairs of electrodes are placed either above and below the eye or to the left and right of the eye. If the eye is moved from the center position towards one...
