Unformatted text preview: rods 6 mil cones C R Each contains pigments consisting of 2 bonded components: • Retinal = light absorbing molecule (derived from vitamin A) • Opsin = a protein • Different opsins result in different pigments Figure 50.17(3) (Campbell 9th ed.) 62 Retinal Rods Pigment: Retinal + opsin = Rhodopsin Light causes conformational change in Rhodopsin, inducing action potential in cell body and then optic nerve Figure 50.17 (4)(Campbell 9th ed.) Retinal Cones 63 Pigment: Retinal + opsin = photopsin 3 different photopsins (w/ dif opsins) detect different wave lengths Red Magenta Yellow White Green Cyan Blue Color blindness due to either: • Defective opsins • Lesions of visual cortex concerned with color vision 65 Types of Sensory Receptors Thermo Respond to: ‐ changes in temperature ‐ dif receptors for dif temp ranges ‐ capscaisin activates high temp receptor ‐ menthol (in mint) activates low temp receptor 66 Types of Sensory Receptors Pain naked dendrites in the epidermis Respond to: ‐ excess heat or pressure, ‐ chemicals released from damaged tissues e.g. prostaglandins from inflammatory response (aspirin/ ibuprofen inhibit prostaglandin synthesis) th Figure 50.5 (Campbell 99th ed.)
