A clinical trial using our prototype bionic eye was successfully completed in 2014 in three patients with retinitis pigmentosa, the most common cause of inherited blindness. The Bionics Institute, in partnership with the Centre for Eye Research Australia, is now engaged in a clinical trial of the next generation bionic eye.
Electrode activity data has been routinely logged for our bionic eye clinical trial patients. However, there is not (as yet) suitable software to collate and visualise these data. The student will be responsible for writing C#, C++, Java, Python, or Matlab code to produce electrograms and draw comparisons of stimulus activity against recorded behavioural responses.
This project is suitable for a student doing Masters in Biomedical Science, who is confident in code writing in one or more of the software types mentioned.
