The 3rd portion of the e-book, utilizing colours, relates how scientists and engineers can use colour to assist achieve perception into their info units via precise colour, fake colour, and pseudocolor imaging.

Instead, the eye connects a large number of rods together to form a much larger "pixel" of greater photosensitivity, but much lower acuity. 10. 10. Number of rods and cones per unit area as a function of distance from the fovea. Note the great concentration of cones in the fovea, and the complete lack of rods there.

Rods- The rod system is the simpler of the two systems, so we discuss it first. The rod photopigment is known as rhodopsin,12 which is most sensitive to blue light. 11, we show the relative photon sensitivities of the rod 12. Also known as visual purple, for the color of the pigment when extracted from the eye. Note that purple does not refer to the color of light to which the pigment is most sensitive. This can cause some confusion, because the cone pigments are named after the color oflight to which they are most sensitive.

These curves do not correspond to any particular creature; they are for illustration only. Number by Colors 25 Chapter 2: Eye, Ear, and Brain individual response curves will be a fact of considerable importance when we start discussing color vision. The Time (t) Dimension Studies have shown that we can hear and understand on the order of 10 different sounds per second. This figure may at first sound confusing. Doesn't the ear hear sounds with frequencies between 20 and 20,000 Hz? Well, yes it does, but the number of changes per second that we can perceive has nothing to do with the sound frequencies detected.
