Abstract: A model for in vitro evaluation of materials for use as neural stimulation electrodes is developed. Critical areas of concern in developing an in vitro test model discussed include: selection of environment, choice of material, design of stimulating equipment, and analytical procedures used to evaluate materials response. A method of providing quantitative analysis of materials response to stimulation conditions is presented. Evaluation techniques involve the use of scanning electron microscopy, x-ray spectros…
