Photoreceptors of a cyprinid fish, the roach: morphological and spectral characteristics


Structure-function studies were undertaken on cones in the retina of the cyprinid fish, the roach,Rutilus rutilus, in order to provide a basis for analysis of colour information by post-receptoral neurones. Measurements were made with two main aims: (i) To determine by microspectrophotometry the absorbance spectra of the photopigments present within the… (More)
