Caption: Colour-enhanced Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) showing the rods and cones which act as photoreceptors in the human retina. Rods (tan) are long nerve cells which respond to dim light, allowing the detection of images. Cones (teal) are shorter cells which detect colour. Together, rods and cones pass visual signals through the optic nerve to the brain. Magnification unknown.
