Show how photoreceptor cells are specialised for their function.

Your students will enjoy learning about photoreceptor cells with this colourful model. The model covers the main parts of cells (cell membrane, nucleus, chromosomes, mitochondria, Golgi) and shows the specialised structures that enable photoreceptors to perform their function.

Students make their rod cell model using the colourful parts working alone or in small groups. It can be printed in colour, or in mono on coloured or white paper.

Great to use with our Biochemistry of Vision and Human Eye models.
