Fig. 5. Increasing the number of pulses per burst in the RD retina.
(A) Typical responses of the RD RGC to burst stimulation are shown as raster plots. Electrically-evoked RGC spikes are highlighted. The time window of the raster plot is set to ± 0.1 sec, with 0 sec representing the stimulus onset (red dashed line). In each raster plot (10 trials), the pulse number increases from top to bottom (#1–#5, #9–#13, #16–#20). The pulse amplitude and pulse duration are fixed with 30 μA and 100 μs/phase. Only RGCs closest 200 μm to the stimulation electrode were analyzed. (B) RGC response curves as a function of pulse number. Error bars represent the standard error of the mean (SEM). Statistical differences in the graphs are indicated by asterisks (*p < 0.05). RGC, retinal ganglion cell; RD, retinal degenerate.
