Preface

  • The metabolism of an organism is regulated at the cellular level, yet is strongly influenced by its environment. The precise metabolomic study of living organisms is currently hampered by measure ... Read More

  • A smart electrode that has a built-in CMOS microchip was fabricated for use as a retinal stimulator used in retinal prostheses. The CMOS microchip was embedded into the core of a bullet-shaped st ... Read More

  • Electronic retinal implants have been developed and are marketed as a therapeutic option for blind people suffering from degenerative retinal diseases such as retinitis pigmentosa. The functional ... Read More

  • A CMOS implantable chip with 256 active pixel sensors (APSs), on-chip photovoltaic cells, and iridium-oxide (IrOx) electrodes is proposed and designed for subretinal prostheses. In the proposed c ... Read More

  • The geometry dependence and three-dimensionalized effect of the electrochemical properties of iridium oxide electrodes used in retinal prosthesis are discussed herein. Planar electrodes with vari ... Read More

  • To realize a three-dimensionally (3D) stacked retinal prosthesis chip having a large stimulus electrode area and a large photodiode area, the fundamental properties of Al-doped ZnO transparent st ... Read More

  • We have been developing a retinal prosthesis based on suprachoroidal transretinal stimulation (STS). From a practical viewpoint, it is essential to confirm the safety and effectiveness of continu ... Read More

  • We developed a visual prosthesis based on suprachoroidal transretinal stimulation (STS) using electrodes width femtosecond-laser-induced porosity (FLiP electrodes). A current of 1.5 mA (1.25 time ... Read More

  • In this paper, we present a novel stimulation controller and monitoring system for evaluating the safety and efficacy of implantable neuroprosthetic devices in a preclinical setting. It features ... Read More

  • The development of a visual prosthesis requires long-term safety evaluation. Functional evaluation using evoked potential, such as visual evoked potential (VEP) and electrical evoked potential, i ... Read More

  • OFF-type bipolar cells (OFF-BCs) are interneurons connecting cone and retinal ganglion cells in the retina. In the mammalian retina, the cone signals are received by alpha-amino- 3-hydroxy-5-meth ... Read More

  • Retinal prostheses for blindness electrically stimulate retinas with photoreceptor cell degeneration to evoke a pseudolight sensation (phosphenes). Biphasic symmetric pulses with charge balancing ... Read More
