Abstract

To the Editor:  —I am in complete agreement with Dr. Miles' statement that after-images can be altered as well as inhibited centrally.I do not, however, feel that the experiment he cites proves the retinal nature of after-images. This experiment does not exclude the possibility of cerebral transfer of the after-image. In fact, the Brock-Givner Test, A.M.A. Arch. Ophth. 47:779, 1952, is based on the retinal stimulation of only one eye with the nonstimulated eye seeing the after-image.
