About this book

Visual Prosthetics provides an in-depth analysis of the principles of operation, current state, anticipated developments, and functional aspects of visual prosthetics restoring sight to visually impaired individuals. This volume uniquely describes the human visual system in health and disease in a pedagogical and didactic manner, fitting to professionals and researchers with a bioengineering background. Readers will find a balanced overview of electrical, molecular chemical and synthetic chromophore stimulation, in addition to the biophysics and psychological aspects of vision restoration. The book also:

  • Uniquely describes the human visual system in health and disease
  • Unlike competitive texts, covers electrical, molecular chemical, and synthetic chromophore stimulation of the visual system
  • Addresses both the biophysics and the psychological aspects of vision restoration, including electrode interface and tissue activation, in addition to patient visual experiences and learning in simulated and experimental prosthetic vision

Professionals in the field of biomedical engineering and graduate and postgraduate researchers will find Visual Prosthetics a valuable reference.

Reviews

From the book reviews:

“This is an excellent up to date reference on vision physiology and medicine. … I highly recommend this book to students, vision scientists, bioengineers, research fellows, neurosurgeons, and neurophysiologists.” (Joseph J. Grenier, Amazon.com, December, 2014)
