(Bar-Ilan University) Researchers report the discovery of evidence indicating that the brain knows how to integrate natural and artificial vision, while maintaining processing information that is important for vision. The results have implications for better restoration of sight in AMD patients implanted with retinal prosthetic devices and support the hypothesis that prosthetic and natural vision can be integrated in the brain. This could also have implications for future brain-machine interface applications where artificial and natural processes co-exist.
