    Hi! I'm currently doing AQA A level biology - the textbook says "as many rod cells are connected to a single bipolar cell, the 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"

    Could someone please explain the part in bold - shouldn't it be 'regardless of how many rod cells are stimulated'? I can't get my head around it at all, thanks!

    Yep, looks like it should say 'regardless of how many rod cells are stimulated'. Well spotted
