What part of the electromagnetic spectrum does night vision lie?

The question is a lot like asking "What is the frequency of hearing ?", or "How fast is speed ?", or "How much does money cost ?". "Night vision" is the sensitivity of the human eye to extremely low light conditions, or the use of optical and electronic devices to render an invisible scene in visible wavelengths. It's not a type of radiation that can be located on the electromagnetic spectrum.
