Publisher: Southwest Center for Microsystems Education

This YouTube video, created by Southwest Center for Microsystems Education (SCME), describes a biomedical application of MEMS technology. This 5:08 minute long video describes "how a microsystems array is used in the retinal prosthesis to stimulate cells in the retina that talk to the brain via the optic nerve." Diagrams of the prosthesis, as well as the retina, and descriptions of how resolution can be increased are included. Viewers can learn more about this topic on the SCME website.
