Phosphene induction by microstimulation of macaque V1.


Non-human primates are being used to develop a cortical visual prosthesis for the blind. We use the properties of electrical microstimulation of striate cortex (area V1) of macaque monkeys to make inferences about phosphene induction. Our analysis is based on well-established properties of V1: retino-cortical magnification factor, receptive-field size, and… (More)
