Visual Sensory Information

Of all of our senses, our vision is the most dominant and important. The sense organ for vision is the eye which is a photoreceptor. Light enters the eye and is focused on the retina. From there, visual information will be transmitted into the brain via the optic nerve. This video reviews the sense of vision, showing how the eye works and how light energy is transformed into a neural impulse that the brain can interpret. Run Time: 8:01
