Title
(EN) METHOD AND DEVICE FOR NEURAL IMPLANT COMMUNICATION
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET DISPOSITIF DE COMMUNICATION D'IMPLANT NEURAL
Abstract
(EN)
Communications along a neural pathway are provided. The neural pathway is stimulated at a first location, in order to evoke neural responses which propagate along the neural pathway, the neural responses being modulated with data. At a second location spaced apart from the first location along the neural pathway the evoked neural responses are sensed. The sensed neural responses are then demodulated to retrieve the data. The stimulation could comprise peripheral sensory stimulation, and the second location could be at an implanted electrode array.
(FR)
La présente invention concerne des communications le long d'une voie neurale. La voie neurale est stimulée au niveau d'un premier emplacement, afin d'évoquer des réponses neurales qui se propagent le long de la voie neurale, les réponses neurales étant modulées avec des données. Au niveau d'un second emplacement espacé du premier emplacement le long de la voie neurale les réponses neurales évoquées sont détectées. Les réponses neurales détectées sont ensuite démodulées pour récupérer les données. La stimulation peut comprendre une stimulation sensorielle périphérique, et le second emplacement peut être au niveau d'un réseau d'électrodes implanté.
