A retina implant for restoring basic visual perception in patients who are blind due to photoreceptor loss should not only evoke focal phosphenes at high resolution, but should also generate cortical representations of form and motion. We are currently exploring these potential capabilities in anaesthetised cats. Fibre electrodes were inserted through a small scleral incision onto the retinal surface for stimulation. For the recording of cortical population activities we placed up to 16 fibre… CONTINUE READING
