Unformatted text preview: ains have to eventually take that flipped information and transform it in order for it to make sense. The Structures of the Eye
The The Retina: The multilayered tissue located on the back of the eye that is responsible for the transference of light rays into neural information
The Fovea: the central area of the retina that is highly adapted for detailed vision The Structures of the Eye
The Rods and Cones: Specialized visual receptors located along the retina. These are the cells that can transform the electromagnetic information into neural impulses Rods and Cones (cont.)
-Rods: receptors that are adapted for vision in dim
light. Their primary purpose is to detect motion.
-Cones: receptors adapted for color vision, daytime
vision, and detailed vision. The fovea contains only

The The Optic Nerve: a collection of cells that is responsible for carrying the information processed by your eye to the brain The Path of Vision (After the Eye)
The Once We Get to the Brain
Once Many of our areas for vision are arranged very intricately
• Layering and columns (related to brain structures and the paths to those structures)
• Specialization of function
Location receptors Orientation receptors Ocular information receptors Color receptors In the Next Class
In We’ll continue discussing sensation and perception by primarily focusing on perception
Make sure that you have section 4.3 read by then, and that you have gone over 4.2 by the time that you meet in sections
Also, paper 1 is due in section in 1 weeks—
make sure to get going on that...
