An implantable prosthesis that stimulates vestibular nerve branches to restore sensation of head rotation and vision-stabilizing reflexes could benefit individuals disabled by bilateral loss of vestibular sensation. The normal vestibular system encodes head movement by increasing or decreasing firing rate of the vestibular afferents about a baseline firing rate in proportion to head rotation velocity. Our multichannel vestibular prosthesis emulates this encoding scheme by modulating pulse rate… CONTINUE READING
