Author(s): A.E. Hadjinicolaou, C. O. Savage, N. V. Apollo, D.J. Garrett, S. L. Cloherty, M. R. Ibbotson, B. J. O'Brien
Optimizing the Electrical Stimulation of Retinal Ganglion Cells 556 235 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

Abstract Epiretinal prostheses aim to restore visual perception in the blind through electrical stimulation of surviving retinal ganglion cells (RGCs). While the effects of several waveform parameters (e.g., phase duration)…

Enhancement of Bilateral Cortical Somatosensory Evoked Potentials to Intact Forelimb Stimulation Following Thoracic Contusion Spinal Cord Injury in Rats

Author(s): Faith A. Bazley, Anil Maybhate, Chuen Seng Tan, Nitish V. Thakor, Candace Kerr, Angelo H. All
Enhancement of Bilateral Cortical Somatosensory Evoked Potentials to Intact Forelimb Stimulation Following Thoracic Contusion Spinal Cord Injury in Rats 556 235 Transactions on Neural Systems and Rehabilitation Engineering (TNSRE)

Abstract The adult central nervous system is capable of significant reorganization and adaptation following neurotrauma. After a thoracic contusive spinal cord injury (SCI) neuropathways that innervate the cord below the epicenter of injury…
