Title (EN) STIMULATION METHOD FOR MAINTAINING RESPONSIVENESS OF CELLS
(FR) MÉTHODE DE STIMULATION POUR MAINTENIR LA RÉACTIVITÉ DE CELLULES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)A method of neural stimulation is described for maintaining the responsiveness of electrically excitable cells to repeated electrical stimulation. A stimulating signal (23) is applied to the electrically excitable cells. The stimulating signal is repeatedly applied (26, 29, 32, 35) with a progressively increasing signal strength. A quiescent period (44) may be interleaved between bursts (43, 45) of stimulation. The electrically excitable cells may be retinal cells.
(FR)Cette invention concerne une méthode de stimulation neurale destinée à maintenir la réactivité de cellules électriquement excitables à une stimulation électrique répétée. Un signal de stimulation (23) est appliqué aux cellules électriquement excitables. Le signal de stimulation est appliqué de manière répétée (26, 29, 32, 35) à une force de signal croissant progressivement. Une période de quiescence (44) peut être intercalée entre des salves (43, 45) de stimulation. Les cellules électriquement excitables peuvent être des cellules rétiniennes.
