  • An understanding of the photopigments is indispensable as, the primary process in photoreception starts with the absorption of light quanta by the photopigment molecules, which in turn triggers the long train of the visual process: molecular transformation, production of transmitter, ionic movements, and often substantial structural changes within the visual cells. Subsequently synaptic transmission of the electric signal to higher order neurons occurs and eventually a behavioural response is… CONTINUE READING
