Using focal stimuli, we successfully recorded oscillatory potentials (OPs) in electroretinograms of the macular regions of 72 normal volunteers. The OPs consisted of three to four wavelets with a mean peak interval of approximately 6.5 msec, consistent with that recorded with conventional full-field stimuli over the entire retina. The changes of amplitude in response to the spot sizes and ring stimuli suggested that the distribution of OPs is different from that in a- and b-waves in human macular region.
