This is a publisher’s version of an abstract of a paper from Proceedings of the Australian Neuroscience Society 1996.
Electrical stimulation of neural tissue involves the transfer of charge to tissue via electrodes. Safe charge transfer can be achieved using biphasic current pulses designed to reduce the generation of direct current (DC) or the production of electrochemical products. However, neural stimulators must also use capacitors in series with electrodes, or electrode shorting between current pulses, to further minimize DC due to electrode polarization.
