Abstract

A recording method for characterizing optic nerve activity is developed in order to study visual information encoding. The method is sufficiently sensitive to resolve the quantitative and temporal nature of light-evoked activity necessary for decoding the visual information stream to the brain. An animal model is used in designing an epi-retinal implant to restore visual function in patients with photoreceptor loss.
