Antecedent light flashes enhance the amplitude of the electroretinogram (ERG) oscillatory potentials, but do not modify other ERG responses nor dark-adaptation sensory thresholds. Metoclopramide infusion (i.v.) has a generally attenuating effect on the ERG, which is more evident under conditions of dark- than light-adaptation. Metoclopramide decreases the peak amplitude of the rod b-wave and the dark-adapted cone b-wave in a similar manner, it also significantly increases the implicit time of the rod b-wave-wave, but not of the dark-adapted cone b-wave. In addition metoclopramide reverses the enhancement of the oscillatory potentials by the antecedent light flashes. © 1987.
