“We can learn about our perception of the world by comparing the mechanisms of the different senses. The activities of rod and cone neurons in the retina initiate the formation of visual images that contain color. To initiate the perception of color, the brain compares the activities of cones that respond preferentially to Long (red), Medium (green) and Short (blue) wavelength light. How do other senses, such as olfaction work?”
