Show your students how the eye converts light to nerve impulses.

The eyes are called the window to the soul and with our amazing model your students will learn how vision actually works by converting light into nerve impulses.

Your students will make a model of the biochemical pathway that starts with a single photon detected by rhodopsin and follow through the steps that convert this into a nerve impulse. It covers rhodopsin, transducin, cyclic GMP as a second messenger, phosphodiesterase, guanylyl cyclase and protein structure.
