Lecture 21: Intro to Color Science (33)

Near the inner surface of retina, there're many retinal ganglion cells which receive informations from photoreceptors (cones and rods).


So one weird thing about the human eye is that the receptor layer is actually behind the nerve cells that transmit the "data" from the receptors to the brain. According to (https://theconversation.com/look-your-eyes-are-wired-backwards-heres-why-38319#:~:text=The%20back%20of%20the%20retina,but%20which%20are%20colour%2Dblind.), this is because the nerve cells refract & guide the light to the receptors. https://inst.eecs.berkeley.edu/~cs194-26/fa20/Lectures/CapturingLight.pdf
