Summary of Photoreception
Photoreception is the process that occurs in the rods and cones of the retina which transduces light energy into electrical energy. The transduction begins with visual pigments in the retina when they capture a photon of light. From this point forward, the reactions that lead to visual discrimination are light-independent.
