    Can someone tell me HOW the human eye works ?

    (the sight part of it that is) - no need to go into the parts, i know all them. I want to know how the retina works.


    The hand of time rested on the half-hour mark, and all along that old front line of the English there came a whistling and a crying. The men of the first wave climbed up the parapets, in tumult, darkness, and the presence of death, and having done with all pleasant things, advanced across No Man's Land to begin the Battle of the Somme. - Poet John Masefield.

    A search for 'Rod' and 'Cone' cells might also be helpful.

    Photons interact with rods and cones?
    This results in nerve impulses and all that jazz.

    There is an excellent flash tutorial here:
    http://www.physpharm.fmd.uwo.ca/undergrad/sensesweb/

    On online textbook here:
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/books/bv...ci.chapter.724
    (The chapters aren't clickable, but what you do is search for the chapter title and you can get to them. Pain in the butt, yes. But an excellent resource. Many other books available at this site as well.)
