This book reveals not only how the eye evolved into an organ of vision, but also describes how molecular mechanisms of key molecules operate in the phototransduction cascade. In this groundbreaking text, experts also explain mechanisms for sensing radiation outside of the visible wavelengths. Comprehensive and penetrating, the book brings together the mechanisms of the visual transduction cascade and is an invaluable text for everyone conducting research in the visual system.
Thorough explication of the phototransduction cascade
Comprehensive and multidisciplinary
Covers developmental, structural and molecular mechanisms
Leads to a more exhaustive understanding of ocular diseases and therapies
