2/5/2009 2 Overview of next 5 classes We will examine the signal path from current generator to neurons (not in that order) Class 2-3 – Electrodes/Packaging Class 4-5 – Stimulating neural activity: short, medium, long-term effects Class 5 – Circuits for neural stimulation Class 6 – applications of neural stim: retina, deep brain stimulation, peripheral nerve For now, assume circuit has power and data source Overview of this class • How are nerves activated by extracellular electrodes? • Measures of neural response • Muscle vs. nerve stimulation • Manipulation of nerve response • Temporary changes in neural excitability • Neural damage from stimulation

2/5/2009 3 Models of Neural Activation • Step #1: Determine potential distribution in tissue from stimulation –V = ρ I electrode /4 π r for homogeneous – Numerical methods for heterogeneous conductivity • Step #2: Make compartment model of neuron and apply voltages as inpu neuron and apply voltages as input • Step #3: Membrane conductance changes following HH models (or similar) Electrical model for unmyelinated axon Extracellular Stimulating electrode Axon McNeal, 1976, Rattay, 1986
