RM«rvo423-443S Artificial eye Model in drawing stage Time running out Heavy flooding diverted Clackamas River near Estaceda, Ore., last week, washing away a chunk of land 75 to 100 feet wide and 300 feet long. This cabin in the Twin Island Park housing development is expected to lose its shaky hold on the riverbank very soon. LONDON, Ont. (CP)-Two blind patieots have had tiny electrodes implanted oo the visual cortex of their brains in experiments here that could lead to an artificial eye, researchers say. The experiments are part of a joint research project of the universities of Western Ontario and Utah. Results of the experiments were released today and will be published later this weeic in Electronics Magazine. The experiments here involved Implanting wafers about an inch squarf and con* taming 64 electrodes on the visual cortex. The operation was done under a local anesthetic so the patients could tell doctors what they were “seeing" and aid in the location of the device. Although the brain senses pain for the rest of the body, it feels no pain itself. Electrical leads from the electrodes were carried to a computer which had a power source that stimulated the electrodes in a variety of patterns. PRODUCES SPOTS The small electrical current produced spots known as phos-)henes that resembled blink-ng distant stars in the patients’ visual field Dr. John Girvin, an assistant professor of neurosurgery at Western, found researchers were able "to pres«it recognizable, simple patten» and Letters to the patients.” Dr. Glrvln said that while there are numerous problems to be resolved, the work does raise optimism for development of artificial sight. The project team reported that one 28-year-old blind Vietnam war veteran was able to draw the patterns he saw. The experiments here and at Salt Lake City are designed to assist work that will tell -scientists how long the visual cortex can take stimulation and how this stimulation can best be used. ELECTRODES REMOVED 'Die electrodes in the experiments here were removed after five days and the patients—still blind—report no complications. The use of the computer was the first time anyone was able to compute the pattern of stimulation on the cortex—an essential component of any system of artificial sight. What the blind might “see" would be a form of sketches or drawings in black and white. “It would be like pencil or charcoal sketches," said Dr. Girvin. The System could involve placing a tiny television eye on the lens of a pair of glasses or the cornea of the blind eye. 2 door hardtop These are the 710% Datsun^ new performance numbers.

South, Lothbrldgo, Albtrta Tol: 32t-9651 Datollno Alborta Bowden sale goes ahead RED DEER (CP) - Helen Hunley, provincial solicitor • general, Wednesday denied that Alberta was having second thoughts about selling the Bowden Correctional Institute near Red Oeer to the federal government. Miss Hunley was replying in a tel^hone interview to a statement by Bill Broad, president of the Civil Service Association of Alberta. Mr. Broad said the provmce was reconsidering the sale because Alberta "would then have no place for the young offender. He also said “Alberta is short of correctional staff and has done nothing to try and retain the staff at Bowden." Miss Hunley said that for some time Bowden has not been limited to young offenders: “Bowden is a minimum security institution and there are offenders of all ages there.” Group backs oil firms CALGARY (CP) - A new citizens’ group has been formed here to support the oil companies’ cause in the energy battle between Ottawa and the provinces. The group, called th^e association to defend property rights, was formed “to defend property rights in general and to defend the rights of oil men to own what they produce,” Michael Miller, a Calgary student, said in an interview Wednesday. Half-page advertisements were placed in both Calgary newspapers Tuesday by the association charging that Ottawa is “ripping off” Alberta with its export tax on oil. The group’s stand was praised by Charles Dunkley, president of the Independent Peroleum    ‘ Canada.
