Title (EN) A NEURAL-STIMULATING DEVICE FOR GENERATING PSEUDOSPONTANEOUS NEURAL ACTIVITY
(FR) DISPOSITIF DE STIMULATION NEURONALE DESTINÉ À GÉNÉRER UNE ACTIVITÉ NEURONALE PSEUDO-SPONTANÉE
Abstract:
(EN) A neural-stimulating device for stimulating nerve cells of a recipient is provided. The neural-stimulating device comprises an electromagnetic radiation (EMR) generator configured to generate one or more optical stimulation signals configured to cause pseudospontaneous activity; and an implantable stimulating assembly having an optical contact coupled to the EMR generator, the stimulating assembly configured to be implanted in the recipient such that the one or more optical stimulation signals are applied to the nerve cells via the optical contact.
(FR) L'invention concerne un dispositif de stimulation neuronale destiné à stimuler les cellules nerveuses d'un receveur. Le dispositif de stimulation neuronale comprend un générateur de rayonnement électromagnétique (EMR) configuré pour générer un ou plusieurs signaux optiques de stimulation configurés pour provoquer une activité pseudo-spontanée; et un assemblage stimulateur implantable ayant un contact optique couplé au générateur d'EMR, l'assemblage stimulateur étant configuré pour être implanté chez le receveur de manière à ce que le signal ou les signaux optiques de stimulation soi(en)t appliqué(s) aux cellules nerveuses par l'intermédiaire du contact optique.
