Origin and Impact of Phototransduction Noise in Primate Cone Photoreceptors


Noise in the responses of cone photoreceptors sets a fundamental limit on visual sensitivity, yet the origin of noise in mammalian cones and its relation to behavioral sensitivity are poorly understood. Our work here on primate cones improves understanding of these issues in three ways. First, we found that cone noise was not dominated by spontaneous… (More)
