Below is a collection of recent podcasts, videos, and media articles relating to our work.
In this article, the Stanford News Service takes a look at the latest advances in treating neurological diseases with brain-computer interfaces, highlighting the work of several faculty in Stanford's Department of Neurosurgery, including Dr. Chichilnisky.
The work of Dr. Chichilnisky is showcased in this introduction to the retina as one of the best-understood and most accessible avenues to the brain.
In addition to discussing Dr. Chichilnisky’s concept for a next-generation artificial retina, this article introduces the work of Dr. Palanker, a close collaborator in the Stanford Artificial Retina Project, who has already built a functional retinal implant.
This article is a brief overview of the work of both Dr. Chichilnisky and Dr. Palanker and their shared goal of finding a solution for blindness through bionic goggles and a retinal implant.
This brief report summarizes Dr. Chichilnisky’s work on reproducing natural patterns of activity in the retina using electrical stimulation
In this 5-minute presentation from the IdeasLab at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Dr. Chichilnisky presents a brief overview of how understanding the retina at a cellular level promises to improve retinal implants.
Dr. E.J. Chichilnisky summarizes his approach for developing high-resolution artificial retinas at the Stanford Brain Mind Summit in 2018. This 20-minute presentation is a quick introduction into the complexities involved when tackling an enormous task such as curing blindness.
Dr. Chichilnisky’s work is showcased in this 7-minute German-language video. Rebuilding the retina with electronics and the future of brain-computer interfaces in general are discussed.
A short 20-minute overview of the technology used in the Stanford Artificial Retina Project. This interview with Dr. Chichilnisky is a good introduction to what sets the Project’s approach apart from other neural interfaces. It touches on the broader implications of this work and neurotechnology in general.
An in-depth 80 minute podcast containing a detailed discussion of the neuroscience and engineering behind the Stanford Artificial Retina Project. Rob Reid’s interview with Dr. Chichilnisky touches on many of the challenges and opportunities involved in restoring vision to the blind, such as implant technology, cell-type specific stimulation, and neural augmentation.
