Optimal electrical activation of retinal ganglion cells

Hadjinicolaou, Alexander

Description

Retinal prostheses are emerging as a viable therapy option for those blinded by degenerative eye conditions that destroy the photoreceptors of the retina but spare the retinal ganglion cells (RGCs). My research sought to address the issue of how a retinal prosthesis might best activate these cells by way of electrical stimulation. Whole-cell patch clamp recordings were made in explanted retinal wholemount preparations from normally-sighted rats. Stimulating electrodes were fabricated from...[Show more]
