Not easily available right now; I haven't specifically looked for their articles even if I know about the project. At the CNS conference where I participated in a seminar on retinal implants there were a few people from Utah (including, I think, one of the authors of the paper I was refering to in my earlier post). Overall the impression (reinforced by Rolf Eckmüller's joking nagging) was that they have a hard time getting things to work - but on the other hand they have selected a very hard problem (unlike Rolf's merely hard retinal implant). I guess a medline search might turn up a lot of good stuff about it.
