During this lecture Professor Zach Murphy will be teaching you about the mechanism of photoreceptors. We go into great detail on the rods and cones, and how they respond differently to various types of light. Finally, we discuss how we adapt from a light to dark environment, to a dark to light environment, and how these photoreceptors respond.
