Retinal ganglion cells : physiology and prosthesis

Wong, Raymond Chi Shing

Description

The retina is responsible for encoding different aspects of the visual world. Light enters the eyes and is converted by the photoreceptors into electrochemical signals. These signals are processed by the retinal network and proceed afferently to the brain via the axons of the retinal ganglion cells (RGCs). The RGCs outputs are in the form of action potentials (spikes), which encrypt the visual information in terms of spike shape, firing frequencies, and the firing patterns. When the...[Show more]
