Abstract:

There is a growing interest in the development of a retinal prosthesis device based on a number of successful experiments that have demonstrated electrical stimulation of retinal tissue. An introcular retinal prosthesis test device is currently under development at NRLJHU. The general approach and technology development issues are discussed as well as some neurophysiology interface issues. The final device will enable acute human experiments in an operating room environment.
