Dr. Daniel Rathbun on CBS Detroit

Usrey Lab alumnus Dr. Daniel Rathbun appeared on CBS Detroit this week to discuss his work on optical implants placed in V1 of humans - Daniel is creating actual cyborgs!  Although currently the implants only cover a few visual degrees and are limited to about 1000 pixels of information, Daniel's goal over the next few years is to be able to increase the field of view and to bring the resolution up to the megapixel range.  We'll be sure to keep an eye on Daniel's work as he fulfills his passion of bringing sight to the blind!
