Abstract

In this issue of Neuron, Jepson et al. (2014) demonstrate that electric stimulation of primate ON parasol ganglion cells evokes spiking patterns similar to those elicited by visual motion. This work represents progress in the development of cell-type-specific retinal prosthetics for vision restoration.
