Extra-ocular muscles that participate in the vestibular ocular reflex (VOR). These muscles are paired with the semi-circular canals of the vestibular system to allow the eyes to maintain stabilized during slow movements of the head.
✿⊱╮Retina close up cross section | The retina is the innermost layer of the eye and is composed of several layers of neurons interconnected by synapses. The only neurons that are directly sensitive to light are the photoreceptor cells, rods and cones. Light energy creates an image of the visual world on the retina, triggering nerve impulses that are sent to the visual centers of the brain through the optic nerve.
Superior view of the brain revealing the visual pathway and superior sagittal sinus. Electrical nerve impulses travel from the eyes to the occipital lobe in the back of the brain via millions of nerves fibers that make up the visual pathway.
Eyes are perhaps the most beautiful part of your body, and they come in many attractive shades, varying from the darkest of browns to the lightest of blues. However, there do exist some rare eye colors that occur in some chosen people.
