in the visual system, sensory transduction
A. all of these are wrong
B. translates physical information from our environment into electrical information for he brain processes
C. conducts energy from the cone receptor cells to the rod receptor cells
D. is the chain of sensory reception, including the cornea, pupil, lens, and retina
E. accounts for the sum of activity in the receptor
B. in the process of sensory transduction, physical information from the environment, in the form of light strikes the specialized receptor cells on the retina. this causes light-sensitive substances to undergo chemical changes. these changes cause an electrical event called a "generator potential" to occur. this "generator potential" then activates nerve cells, which transmit the visual information to the brain.
