Download PDF for this date

The possibility of restoring sensory perception to the sightless, giving the blind virtual possibility of “seeing” again through electrical impulses, was envisaged today as within reach by Dr. Ollendorf, professor of electrical engineering at the Israel Technical Institute here.

Writing in the latest issue of the Technical Scientific Bulletin, Dr. Ollendorf poses several questions relating to the mechanism of defective vision, and points out possibilities of their solution with the aid of electro-encephalographic methods.
