In 1969 Sillman, Ito and Tornita reported on the effect of sodium aspartate on the ERG of the isolated frog retina. Besides abolition of the b-wave (which was described earlier by Furukawa and Hanawa in the toad, 1955) the authors succeeded in separating distal and proximal PIII (Murakami and Kaneko, 1966) by application of aspartate. By the suppression of the proximal PIII the receptor potential (distal PIII) could be isolated.
