The Action of Light on the Retina: Translation and Commentary of Holmgren (1866) (2019)

unapi

In 1866, Holmgren published an account of the physiological action of light on the retina. The article is taken as the origin of research on the electroretinogram, although the term was not introduced until much later. We present a translation of the article into English and provide a commentary on its reception and significance.
