one of the two photoreceptors in the vertebrate eye that detects color during the day.
Light-sensitive retinal photoreceptor cell that provides sharp visual acuity and color discrimination.
The light-sensing structure on the retina of the eye capable of detecting colour.
one of the types of visual receptors of the retina that are especially important in visual acuity and color vision.
nerve cells of the retina (along with rods) that transmit impulses along the optic nerve to the brain. Cones provide color vision and respond best to bright light.
Specialized cells in the retina that are involved with color and full-light (day) vision.
Part of the photoreceptors that gives information about color. There are red, green, and blue cones, which each respond to different frequencies of the light spectrum. The retina contains approximately six million cones.
A photoreceptor of the retina, responsible for color vision.
In eye physiology, a cone-shaped photoreceptor in the retina of the eye responsible for fine visual acuity and color vision. Cones function only at daylight levels of illumination.
visual receptor cell sensitive to color
A receptor in the eye which is capable of viewing images and color.
receptor in retina responsible for colour vision
One of the two main classes of photoreceptor found in the vertebrate eye. Cones produce usable outputs only at relatively high light levels and provide the main inputs for color vision. There are three types of cones in the human eye, each type having a different spectral sensitivity.
receptor used for color vision
One of the two types of nerve endings of the retina. In the macular area they are tightly bunched to produce maximum visual acuity. They are sensitive to color, much less sensitive to motion.
A primary receptor cell for vision located in the retina. It is sensitive to color and used primarily for daytime vision.
A photosensitive receptor in the retina that helps you to see color.
one type of specialized light-sensitive cells ( photoreceptors) in the retina that provide sharp central vision and color vision. Found to be highly concentrated in fovea. (See also rod).
Receptor found in the retina important for color vision and detailed sight.
A type of specialized light-sensitive cell (photoreceptor) in the retina of the eye that provide sharp central vision and color vision. See the entire definition of Cone
A retinal receptor that dominates the retinal response when the luminance level is high and provides the basis for the perception of color.
the receptors on the retina that perceive color. There are three types, sensitive to red, green and blue light respectively.
In the eye, a specialized cell of the retina found predominantly in the fovea and more sparsely throughout the retina. The cones mediate both chromatic and achromatic sensations. See also fovea, retina, rod.
