Implantation of Modular Photovoltaic Subretinal Prosthesis : OSLI Retina Journal


Establish the surgical procedure for subretinal implantation of multiple photovoltaic arrays for the restoration of sight. Multiple silicon photovoltaic arrays of 1 mm in diameter and 30 µm in thickness were implanted subretinally via single retinotomy in rabbits.

Retinal safety of near infrared radiation in photovoltaic restoration of sight


Photovoltaic restoration of sight requires intense near-infrared light to effectively stimulate retinal neurons. We assess the retinal safety of such radiation with and without the retinal implant.

PRIMA – Interactions of Prosthetic and Natural Vision in Animals With Local Retinal Degeneration


Prosthetic restoration of partial sensory loss leads to interactions between artificial and natural inputs. Ideally, the rehabilitation should allow perceptual fusion of the two modalities. Here we studied the interactions between normal and prosthetic vision in a rodent model of local retinal degeneration.

ATIS – Neuromorphic engineering systems and applications. A snapshot of neuromorphic systems engineering

The papers show the results of feasibility studies of new concepts, as well as neuromorphic systems that have been constructed from more established neuromorphic technologies. Five papers exploit neuromorphic dynamic vision sensor (DVS) events that mimic the asynchronous and sparse spikes on biology’s optic nerve fiber.
