Richard A. Normann

Richard A. Normann is a Distinguished Emeritus Professor of Bioengineering and Ophthalmology at the University of Utah, Salt Lake City, UT, USA, where he conducts research on sensory encoding and information processing by neural ensembles in the vertebrate central and peripheral nervous systems. He is the inventor of the Utah Electrode Array technologies and other high-electrode-count microelectrode arrays that are being used for basic and applied research in the emerging field of neuroprosthetics. His current research interests are the cortically based restoration of vision in those with profound blindness, and peripheral nerve interventions for the restoration of stance and for the control of prosthetic limbs and bladder control in those who have lost these functions.
