Figure 1: Retinal function is rapidly lost in the rat retina following acute complete inhibition of metabolite supply. (a) The leading edge of the raw response (a-wave, unfilled circles) was modeled using a phototransduction model ( , thick line). (b) Postreceptoral b-wave (filled circles) is more susceptible than phototransduction amplitude ( , unfilled circles) and sensitivity ( , unfilled triangles). Reprinted from [24] with permission.
