Seeing the light via retinal prosthetics

by Anonymous on Dec. 23rd, 2011

Neuroscientist Sheila Nirenberg studies neural coding at New York's Weill Medical College. In this TedTalk, Professor Nirenberg explains her recent work in determining how the brain gathers outside information and encodes it into patterns of electrical activity. Her research has led her to develop an amazing prosthetic retinal device aimed at treating blindness.
