Learning to See Again with a Bionic EyeRegister Today
How can we return a functional form of sight to people who are living with incurable blindness? Despite recent advances in the development of visual neuroprostheses (“bionic eyes”), the quality of current prosthetic vision is still rudimentary and does not differ much across different technologies. Dr. Beyeler will describe his recent efforts to develop computational models to predict what implant recipients “see” when they use their devices. He will discuss the challenges people face when they need to learn to see again and will outline future steps.
