Gregor Belušič, born 1972, received PhD degree in Biological sciences from the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia, in 2003. His research interests include comparative physiology of insect visual systems and vision in transgenic Drosophila, and his primary research techniques include ERG and intracellular recording. He has been collaborating with the groups of prof. Paulsen (University of Karlsruhe), prof. Huber (University of Hohenheim), and prof. Stavenga (University of Groningen), with whom he has published articles on insect vision. He is currently employed as a teaching assistant at Biotechnical faculty, Ljubljana, Slovenia, leading courses in Animal and Human Physiology and Neurobiology. The Human Physiology practicals include an extensive course in human electroretinography in collaboration with the group of prof. Hawlina at the Eye Clinic, University Medical Centre Ljubljana. He has been awarded the ADInstruments Macknight Progressive Educator award by the American Physiological Society in 2011 for innovations in physiology teaching.

Electroretinography (ERG) is a non-invasive electrophysiological method which provides objective information about the function of the retina. Advanced ERG allows to assay the different types of retinal receptors and neurons in human and animal models. This book presents contributions on the recent state of the ERG. The book is divided into three parts. The first, methodological part, reviews standard methods and normatives of human ERG, reports about the advanced spatial, temporal and spectral methods of stimulation in human ERG, and deals with the analysis of the multifocal ERG signal. The second part deals with the ERG in different diseases of the human visual system and in diabetes. The third part presents the ERG in the standard animal models of human retinal disease: mouse, rat, macaque and fruitfly.
