This is quoted from the AQA book
"As a consequence of many rod cells linking to a single bipolar cell is that light received by rod cells sharing the same neurone will only generate a single impulse travelling to the brain regardless of how many neurones are stimulated."
So does this mean there is one signal to the brain per neurone , so each neurone having multiple rod cells on them
One signal to the brain for all the neurones (that are stimulated), so multiple neurones each with its own set of rod cells
beause it kinds of talks about my first thought by talking about the 'consequence of many rod cells being linked to one neurone' but then it's like its saying my second thought saying'regardless of how many neurones' are stimulated.
does anyone understand my confusion?
