As one of those people who have been around for a while, I
have seen a number of tests come and go several times.
Usually tests get revived when a new
application or more commonly when advances in technology improve the test and create results their original inventors never could have imagined.
My talk at the Mid-Year Program in San
Francisco "Electrophysiology and Pupillometry in Ophthalmic Imaging” is
just such a topic.
So what do you get when combine construct mathematics,
multi-channel digital signal amplifiers, precision calibrated liquid crystal on
silicon displays, infrared fundus cameras and lots of raw computing power?
You get the exciting world of fundus monitored
and pupil monitored visual electrophysiology. These are not the old VEP's and
ERG's of the past.
Modern technology has
made powerful and reproducible multifocal test a reality.
A reality that a number of drug trials want
to use and no group is better suited to learning and performing these tests than
the great members of the OPS.
I hope you will join us at the Mid-Year Program in San Francisco
to learn not only a little bit about the basics of the new electrophysiology test
but a lot of other great topics as well.
Oh and that's just half of my talk, I will be back with more on the other
