Caption: Micro-electrode array biochip. Close-up of the central area of an MEA (micro-electrode) biochip from Ayanda Biosystems. These biochips are used to record and stimulate electrical activity in a range of body tissues. This one is being used in research into artificial retinas. The next generation of retinal implants, by around 2014, are expected to comprise 600 to 1000 electrodes. These retinal implants should enable improved vision for the blind compared to earlier implants that contained only 60 electrodes. Photographed in 2010 at the Institut de la Vision, Paris, France.
