Fractal Interconnects for Neuro-Electronic Interfaces, Including Artificial Retinas
In conditions such as macular degeneration and retinitis pigmentosa, impaired vision is caused by a loss of function in the photoreceptor cells (the rods and cones), which lie within the retina at the back of the eye. However, the rest of the visual system, including the optic nerve and the visual processing centers in the brain, remain intact. If ...

The Pupillary Dilation Response: A Tool for Assessing Sensory Performance in Humans
This tool demonstrates a correlation between the magnitude of a person’s involuntary pupil dilation and their hearing. A subject’s pupil size increases when they hear a sound, and the magnitude of the pupil increase is proportional to the intensity of the sound. The Pupillary Dilation Response tool can use this correlation to test hearing...

Off-Resonant Receive Coil with Integrated Amplifier for Magnetic Resonance Imaging
Researchers at the University of Oregon have developed a new technology for reception and amplification of magnetic resonance images. Signal reception in magnetic resonance imaging relies on radio-frequency receive coils, the design of which is the single most important factor determining image quality. In recent years the use of arrays of recei...
