Imagine you are bioengineering an artificial sensor that would act as an “artificial eye” for people suffering with vision loss. Describe what features your device would need in order to transduce light into electrical signals that could then be interpreted by the brain, such that the individual could correctly perceive their surroundings and replace the normal physiological function of the visual system?


Include a comparison in terms of both structure and function how components and processes of your device are analogous to structures or functions of the human eye. For example, relaying information regarding position, color, intensity, receptive field, adaptation; mapping to the visual cortex; how to enable the brain to handle visual processing.


Imagine you want the individual to perceive UV light – what modifications to your above design could you make to achieve this?
