To analyze the Electrically evoked response (EER) in relation to the central visual pathway, the authors studied the properties of wave patterns and peak latencies of EER in 35 anesthetized adult cats. The cat EER showed two early positive waves on outward current (cornea cathode) stimulus and three or four early positive waves on inward current (cornea anode) stimulus. These waves were recorded within 50 ms after stimulus onset, and were the most consistent components in cat EER. The stimulus threshold for EER showed a less individual variation than amplitude. The difference of stimulus threshold between outward and inward current stimulus was also essentially negligible. The stimulus threshold was higher in early components than in late components. The peak latency of EER became shorter and the amplitude became higher, as the stimulus intensity was increased. However, this tendency was reversed and some wavelets started to appear when the stimulus was extremely strong. The recording using short stimulus duration and bipolar electrodes enabled us to reduce the electrical artifact of EER. These results obtained from cats were compared with those of humans and rabbits.
