In this formidable symposium, which is primarily directed at the basic scientist working in the field of retinal electrophysiology, one may satisfy his curiosity about various influences upon the electroretinogram ranging from the effect of pyruvate on the dark adapted frog retina to the changes induced by operations on the cisterna magna of rabbits. Clinicians, do not despair, however, for those of you who are sufficiently intrepid to scan the volume will find articles dealing with clinical electroretinography in thyroid disorders, vascular occlusion, diabetes, the tapetoretinal degenerations, congenital nystagmus, and high myopia.

The symposium was made up of 94 contributors hailing mostly from Japan, but coming also from Europe, India, Great Britain, Australia, and the United States; and it was held in the beautiful city of Hakone. The manuscripts submitted by the Oriental authors contain multiple humorous malapropisms which tend to keep the reader on his mental toes at all
