During this lecture Professor Zach Murphy will be teaching you about the photo transduction cascade. We go into great detail on how the images we see eventually reach the retina where it is then transmitted by photoreceptors including the cones and rods, which respond to different types of light. Finally, these impulses are carried by ganglion cells which form the axons of the optic nerve.
