–the light-sensitive receptor cells, located at the back of the retina. What are they specialized in?
Rods and cones
(about 120 million rods in each retina) retinal receptors that detect black, white, and gray; It takes just 5 photons of light for them to respond, therefore highly sensitive to light.
(about 6 million cones in each retina) enable us to see color and fine detail in adequate light, but do not function in very dim light.
