Document Summary

Bipolar and ganglion cells act to summarize information. A part of visual space that a neuron responds to. The part of space a neuron responds to. 20 cones or more- > fewer bipolar cells - > one ganglion cell. Ganglion cell cares about what all of the cones are picking up. There is a summerization process: the fewer and fewer neurons pick up more information. Trichromatic theory = tri; three , chro - color. Provides and generates all the colors that we see. When a cone more activated, it can see red. When a cone is less activate, it sees more green. More stimulation means one color, less means the other. When people are red green colorblind, the cones are not fully developed or missing. Both the left and the right eye contribute to the left and right visual field. If you have a problem with one eye, both visual fields will be effected.
