PHOTOCHEMISTRY OF VISION EPUB!
Photochemistry of Vision. Photochemistry of vision highlights how the chemical changes in the eye enables the humans to see. In the picture above the parts of the eye are mentioned. An object is clearly visible only when the light coming from the object is focused on the retina.

Here photochemistry of vision employ experimental and theoretical 2D photon echo spectroscopy to directly resolve for the first time the Franck Condon factors that initiate isomerization on the excited potential energy surface and track the reaction dynamics.
The first image, formed by the action of light on the photoreceptors, photochemistry of vision changed to a second image in the bipolar cells, and this in turn is converted to a third image in the ganglion cells.
In the formation of the second image, the signal is altered by the horizontal cells, and in the formation of the third, it is altered by the amacrine cells.
There is little change in the impulse pattern in the lateral geniculate bodies, so the third image reaches the occipital cortex. Receptive field structure in ganglion cells: Palmer, Visual cortex processing: Cortical Receptive Fields Simple Cells: In darkness, it has photochemistry of vision bent shape and it is known as the cis retinal.
When light falls on this cis retinal, it undergoes isomerization and forms trans retinal. Due to this conversion, the bond between opsin and the trans retinal breaks.
Rhodopsin containing the all-trans isomer of retinal is known as bathorhodopsin. However, the trans isomer does not fit well into the protein, due to its rigid, elongated shape.
The photochemistry of vision.
While photochemistry of vision is contained in the protein, the all-trans-retinal adopts a twisted conformation, which is energetically unfavorable. The molecule undergoes a series of shape changes to try and better fit the binding site.
Therefore, a series of changes in the protein occurs to expel the trans-retinal from the protein. This triggers proton transfer in the H-bond.
At the same time cis-trans isomerization begins but it only reaches the coplanar all-trans stage at metarhodopsin-II.
