This processed information is then sent by another computer to 68 platinum electrodes implanted in Jerry's brain, on the surface of the visual cortex.Jerry 'sees' a simple display of dots defining the outline of an object. Jerry's vision is equivalent to 20/400 - the same as a severly short-sighted person.
