Rod and cone photoreceptor cells are specialized neurons of the vertebrate retina that function in the primary events of vision. Rod cells are highly sensitive to light and operate under dim lighting conditions. Cones are less sensitive and function in bright light and in color vision. Both photoreceptors are elongated cells consisting of several morphologically and functionally distinct regions (Fig. 1). The photoreceptor outer segment located adjacent to the retinal pigment epithelial (RPE… CONTINUE READING
