i)Rod receptorsii)Cone receptorsc)Rise to the optic nervei)Retinal ganglion cells 4)Compare and contrast rods and cones in terms of their location in the retina and their function (hint: one is for acuity, the other for sensitivity). 5)Understand visual transduction (and the general term transduction) insomuch as we discussed it. Know what the term transductionmeans in general. 6)Know the major stops of the visual pathway and what function they serve. f)Superior colliculi (midbrain): map of visual world. Reflexive orientation to

7)Where is primary visual cortex? Primary visual cortex in my right hemisphere process what part of my visual world? 8)What/where are the what and the where pathways? (no that’s not a typo) Which is the dorsal stream and which is the ventral stream?a)9)How are the 3 types of cones different from each other? Describe how color vision is based on the pattern of activity across the there types of cones. Why do after-images occur? What is different about the cones of people with red-green colorblindness?
