Caption: Cone cell. Computer model of the contents of a cell body of a cone nerve cell from the human retina. The retina is the light-sensitive tissue that lines the inside of the eye. Each cone can detect either red, blue or green light, converting it into a nervous impulse that travels to the optic nerve and on to the brain. The cell nucleus (brown) is at bottom left. The Golgi body (green) completes the assembly of any proteins that will be secreted, stored or incorporated into the cell membrane. This image was created at the Laboratory of Neuro Imaging (LONI) at UCLA, USA.
