A Wide-Field Suprachoroidal Retinal Prosthesis Is Stable and Well Tolerated Following Chronic Implantation
(ASSOC RESEARCH VISION OPHTHALMOLOGY INC, 2013-05-01)
PURPOSE: The safety of chronic implantation of a retinal prosthesis in the suprachoroidal space has not been established. This study aimed to determine the safety of a wide-field suprachoroidal electrode array following ...
Retinal Changes in an ATP-Induced Model of Retinal Degeneration
(FRONTIERS MEDIA SA, 2016-04-29)
In rodents and felines, intravitreal administration of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) has been shown to induce photoreceptor death providing a tractable model of retinal degeneration in these species. This study investigated ...
Virtual Electrodes by Current Steering in Retinal Prostheses
(ASSOC RESEARCH VISION OPHTHALMOLOGY INC, 2014-12-01)
PURPOSE: Retinal prostheses are an approved treatment for vision restoration in retinal degenerative diseases; however, present implants have limited resolution and simply increasing the number of electrodes is limited by ...
Drug delivery to the inner ear
(IOP PUBLISHING LTD, 2012-12-01)
Bionic devices electrically activate neural populations to partially restore lost function. Of fundamental importance is the functional integrity of the targeted neurons. However, in many conditions the ongoing pathology ...
Electroacoustic Stimulation: Now and into the Future
(HINDAWI PUBLISHING CORPORATION, 2014-01-01)
Cochlear implants have provided hearing to hundreds of thousands of profoundly deaf people around the world. Recently, the eligibility criteria for cochlear implantation have been relaxed to include individuals who have ...
Vision function testing for a suprachoroidal retinal prosthesis: effects of image filtering
(IOP PUBLISHING LTD, 2016-06-01)
OBJECTIVE: One strategy to improve the effectiveness of prosthetic vision devices is to process incoming images to ensure that key information can be perceived by the user. This paper presents the first comprehensive results ...
An automated psychoacoustic testing apparatus for use in cats
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2014-03-01)
Animal behavioral studies make a significant contribution to hearing research and provide vital information which is not available from human subjects. Animal psychoacoustics is usually extremely time consuming and labor ...
Learning Pitch with STDP: A Computational Model of Place and Temporal Pitch Perception Using Spiking Neural Networks
(PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2016-04-01)
Pitch perception is important for understanding speech prosody, music perception, recognizing tones in tonal languages, and perceiving speech in noisy environments. The two principal pitch perception theories consider the ...
