  • Abstract: Phototransduction is a complex biological process in which photons are detected in the retina giving rise to a meaningful representation of incident light. In low-light conditions, this occurs primarily in the rods with the light signal encoded in their membrane potentials. The ionic current model of Kamiyama et al. (1996 and 2009) describes changes in the rod membrane potential due to a photocurrent and other ionic currents. In the retina, rods function together in a large coupled… CONTINUE READING
