The Vertebrate Retina: Structure, Function, and Evolution: Part 1B: Photoreceptors and Image Processing (35:22)

submitted by: scivee-team

In this set of lectures, Jeremy Nathans explores the molecular mechanisms within the retina that mediate the first steps in vision. The first lecture focuses on the structure of the light sensing receptors, the intracellular signals that are triggered by light absorption, and the ways in which the retina extracts information from a complex scene.
