What light-sensitive cells in the eye detect light and dark but not color?
Rods are for seeing light and dark, cones are for seeing color.
What is the area on the retina where the optic nerve attaches and has no rods or cones to detect light or color?
Dogs most definitely are not color blind including Labrador retrievers . There are some differences in their vision from that of humans, but -- contrary to popular myth, their eyes contain both rods (cells that detect light and movement but not color) and cones (which detect color and need more light than rods do in order to activate).
Cone cells in the retina of the eye detect color. There are three types of cone cells. Two of them detect light of different wavelengths, one medium and the other long. And the third detects the overall intensity of the light source. Your brain uses this information to interpret the combination of those three receptors to give you the sensation that you percieve different colors.
Rods and cones are the ones involved in actually seeing. Rods detect mostly black and white, though they might detect some blue. The cones are the color receptors, and they have 3 subtypes to detect long, medium, and short wavelengths of visible light. There is a third type, photosensitive ganglion cells. They are important for entrainment and reflexive responses to the brightness of light..
When the light reflects on an object into your eye you see the objects colour. When all of the light reflects into your eye you see the colour as white. So if some of the light is absorbed into the object you see it as it being a certain colour. There are cone cells in the eye that detect color (the other type of cells is rod cells, which are better at distinguishing light/darkness and…
Humans and many other animals have light-sensing cells in their eyes, but light-sensing cells don't have to be in eyes. Earthworms have light-sensing cells scattered throughout their skin, with more of them near their head end and on their backs. When they stick their head out of their burrow, these cells detect light. If they are crawling above ground, the cells on their backs detect light. If there is too much light, they crawl back…
well the retina is covered is covered with two kinds of light sensitive nerves cells. six million of the are cones, these cells read color. Cone-shaped cells are divided into three types that detect only the specific colors such as yellow,green,or blue but combine to let you see an incredible array of different colors
Our eyes are specifically designed to detect light. The objects reflecting the light change the property of light, including its intensity and color; this allows us to make conclusions about the objects it was reflected from.

The retina which is the innermost layer of the eye, a layer of nerve tissue containing light sensitive (photosensitive) cells called photoreceptors. There are 2 types the rod cells that detect light intensity and which are concentrated towards the periphery of the retina. Cone cells detect colour and are most concentrated at the fovea at the back of the eyeball.
The retina contains two different types of receptor cells which are called cones and rods. Cones are used to detect colour and rods are used to detect the brightness or dimness. The cone cells are more sensitive than rod cells in bright light. Because of this, it is more difficult to distinguish between colours in dim light.
The human eye has two different types of cell: cones for seeing color, and rods of seeing in low light. Since most stars do not provide us much light, we mostly see them with the rod cells in our eyes, which cannot detect color. It is possible to see the color of some stars, such as the red giant Betelgeuse.
you can see light and colour due to the specific cells on the retina of the eye. these cells are called rods and cones. Rod cells allow you to see in the dark but do not allow you to see colour hence why in the dark everything is black and white. the cone cells allow you to see colour by picking up different wavelengths of light. the amount of these cone cells picking up a…
It is called using averted vision. It is better because cone cells, located in the center of the eye are used to detect light and color and are not so useful at night. Rod cells are located off of center and are used to detect dim objects, such as faint stars. For best results right handed folks should look slightly to the left and left handed folks to the right.
Going from a bright area to a darker one means that not as much light is available for your eyes. The pupils will dilate (widen) to let in more of the available light, but even then your eyes may take a minute to adjust. In very dim light, the cells in the retina that detect color (cones) will not function and other cells (rods) will begin to work, but these can only detect all frequencies…
Rod cells pair one neuron with many light receptor cells. The functional result is that they detect under much lower light conditions, but only in grayscale, e.g. black, white, grey. They also detect movement more readily, but not as sharply as cones will. They're located so that your peripheral vision is mostly based on rods -- this is why you can see things in low light conditions at the periphery of your vision and not…
There are cones and rods in the eye. While Cones detect color from white light, Rods sense the intensity of the light. For example, let's say green light has 47 intensity and orange has 27 intensity. While cones detect which color is which, rods are basically doing the similar thing as cones are but different because it detects which intensity is which.
Colors do not exist without light. Your eyes have rod cells and cone cells and only the cone cells can perceive color. However, in low light areas only rod cells are sensitive enough to be activated and they cannot perceive colour. This is a physiological interpretation to the question as color, as far as we know, is an animal perception to the differences in the frequency of light and may not be a universal perception.
We see colours because our eyes have in their retina three sorts of light sensitive cells called "cone cells". Some of these are sensitive to Red light. some are sensitive to Green light and some are sensitive to Blue light. There are also cells called "rods" which just detect the presence of light (not in colour) Our brains interpret the combined signals from the Cone Cells as the colours of the spectrum.
