We propose a framework to evaluate the information content of different stimulation strategies used in neuroprosthetic implants. We analyze the responses of retinal ganglion cells to electrical stimulation using an information theory framework. This methodology allows us to calculate the information content by looking at the consistency of neural responses generated across multiple repetitions of the same stimulation protocol.
