HintAnswer
region w/out receptor cells where the optic nerve and blood vessels exit the eye, blind spot
transparent outer layer of eye whose curvature is fixed, it bends light rays and forms the image onto the retina
acuity depends of the size of the...
sensitivity and color depend on the...
around 50 rods connect to single diffuse bipolar cell
ganglion cell that receives input from diffuse bipolar cells and rods
contracted by iris to let more or less light in
visual area that responds to line features and contours
central portion of retina packed w/most photoreceptors. mainly cones. sharpest vision
photoreceptor:
interneurons of the retina that receive info from rods and cones
cells in V1 that tune to lines of various angles
bipolar cell that receives info from 50 rods
visual areas that respond to motion
visual area that responds to basic geometric shapes and faces
wave and particle that is light, electromagnetic radiation
photopigments in cons that are insensitive to light
cells in V1 that process general orientation of lines at certain angles at certain motions
2 theories required for color vision
focuses image on the retina
eye is too long, light focuses in front of retina, nearsightedness
V1 2 receptive fields
contracts pupil to let more or less light in
where in axons of optic nerve terminate, has 6 layers
theory: 3 opsins in cones must be in ooposition of one another on receptive fields to be processed
HintAnswer
theory: combinations of the 3 opsins in cones represent a certain color
Visual pathway
photopigment part:
region of occipital cortex where 90% of visual info arrives, 2 receptive fields
specialized retinal cells that connect bipolar cells to ganglion cells
bending of light rays by the lens and cornea
eye is too short, light focuses behind retina, farsightedness
specialized retinal cells that connect photoreceptors to bipolar cells
why transduction is backwards
receptive fields: hyperpolarization in response to glutamate from photoreceptors
system that operates at low levels of light, involes rods
system that operates at high levels of light and involes the cones,
anatomy of retina (outer to inner)
interneurons of the retina that receive info from bipolar cells, axons from optic nerve
 
wavelengths not felected by an object is it's...
photopigments in rods that are extremely sensitive to light
nerve II, made of ganglion axons
receptive surface inside back of eye, contains photoreceptors and other neuron cells
photopigment part:
ganglion cell that receives input from midget bipolar cells and cons
every cell in a ....... will respond to a specific orientation of a line as it is rotated 10-15 degrees
bipolar cell that receives info from a single con
photoreceptor:
receptive fields: depolarization in response to glutamate from photoreceptors
