Difference spectra of the visual pigments have been measured in single rods and cones of a parafoveal region of the human retina. Rods display an absorption maximum (λmax) at about 505 m� associated with rhodopsin. Three kinds of cones were measured: a blue-sensitive cone with Amaxe about 450 mpf; two green-sensitive cones with Xmaa about 525 mu�; and a red-sensitive cone with λmax about 555 m� These are presumably samples of the three types of cone responsible for human color vision.
