Illustration of a brain implant

An Arizona State University neuroscientist is helping a private company develop a brain implant that will help the blind to see. Intended for use by people without a retina — the largest segment of the blind population — the device is expected to enable the blind to see light and shapes and, in a best-case scenario, allow them to read a large-print book. Bradley Greger, an associate professor with the Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, is working with a California company on a cortical implant.
