In silico ion channel-particular transport in an organic semiconductor-implanted retina
Organic semiconductors have optoelectronic properties and are applicable to retinal stimulation and prosthesis. In this study, a toy model for a partially defective retina implanted with an organic semiconductor is proposed. To simulate the ion channel-particular conductivity of the retinal nerve signals, open quantum system approach and field theoretical methods were utilized. It is observed that a more repulsive onsite interaction in the organic semiconductor optimizes the conductivity in partially defective retinal neuronal layers.
