|Name||Retinal contrast gain|
|Description||"To assess a possible relationship between visual contrast processing at the level of the retina and depressive phenomena, we measured the pattern electroretinogram (PERG)-based contrast gain (hereafter ""contrast gain"") to achromatic, gray checkerboard stimuli in healthy control subjects, unmedicated patients with MDD, and medicated patients with MDD. The PERG is an objective electrophysiologic response, recorded at the cornea in response to visual pattern stimulation. It mainly represents activity of the retinal ganglion cells and thus can serve as a surrogate marker of retinal information processing from the photoreceptors to the beginning of the optic nerve. (E. Bubl et al.,2010; PMID: 20359698)"|
