This volume of "Bibliotheca Ophthalmologica" (No. 85) contains most of the presentations delivered during a meeting (chaired by R. Täumer) at the Universitäts-Augenklinik in Freiburg, West Germany, 1974. No attempt is made to be comprehensive, and several participants provide only case-report evidence of the clinical applicability of electro-oculographic (EOG) recordings. Täumer and his coworkers improved the usual indirect technique of EOG registration elegantly by means of electronic processing and formal mathematical analysis. Combining dc-ERG records with fast EOG tracings, a continuum of electrical responses is obtained from the human eye. Some modifications of the testing procedure are proposed and are well summarized. The theoretical basis for EOG tests, their justification, and their limitations are briefly discussed. The book seems a steppingstone for furthering our understanding of the EOG. It will be useful for the increasing number of electrodiagnostic laboratories when trying to incorporate EOG results into their testing program. One
