A complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS)-based multichip flexible neural stimulator for retinal prostheses was developed. The multichip retinal stimulator is capable of simultaneous multisite stimulation. An on-chip stimulation generator was implemented on the "unit chip," which is the core device of the multichip retinal stimulator. The performance(More)
In this review, the concept, design, performance, and a functional demonstration of multifunctional complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) image sensors dedicated to on-chip biosensing applications are described. We developed a sensor architecture that allows flexible configuration of a sensing pixel array consisting of optical and electric sensing(More)
Techniques for fast, noninvasive measurement of neuronal excitability within a broad area will be of major importance for analyzing and understanding neuronal networks and animal behavior in neuroscience field. In this research, a novel implantable imaging system for fluorescence potentiometry was developed using a complementary metal-oxide semiconductor(More)
Measurement of brain activity in multiple areas simultaneously by minimally invasive methods contributes to the study of neuroscience and development of brain machine interfaces. However, this requires compact wearable instruments that do not inhibit natural movements. Application of optical potentiometry with voltage-sensitive fluorescent dye using an(More)
A CMOS image sensor-based implantable glucose sensor based on an optical-sensing scheme is proposed and experimentally verified. A glucose-responsive fluorescent hydrogel is used as the mediator in the measurement scheme. The wired implantable glucose sensor was realized by integrating a CMOS image sensor, hydrogel, UV light emitting diodes, and an optical(More)
We developed a complementary metal oxide semiconductor (CMOS) integrated device for optogenetic applications. This device can interface via neuronal tissue with three functional modalities: imaging, optical stimulation and electrical recording. The CMOS image sensor was fabricated on 0.35 μm standard CMOS process with built-in control circuits for an(More)
| W e discuss articial computer-based KANSEI and its application in a media database retrieval system. In our three-step approach, we rst design a psychological space in which h uman impressions of images , movies, or music are expressed as coordinates. Second, we determine the mapping relationship between the psychological space and physical media(More)
