Responses of rabbit retinal ganglion cells to subretinal electrical stimulation using a silicon-based microphotodiode array.

PURPOSE With subretinal prostheses, retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) are activated by electrical stimulation of the retinal neural network. The aim of this study was to evaluate the efficacy of silicon-based solar cells in evoking RGC responses by electrically stimulating the photoreceptor side of an isolated retina. METHODS A light-bleached retina of an… CONTINUE READING
