Пространственная ориентация живых организмов посредством зрительной сенсорной...
То, что одно волокно зри­тельного нерва получает информацию от многих палочек, повышает чувствитель­ность в ущерб остроте. Палочки преобла­дают у ночных видов, для которых важнее первое свойство. Колбочки наиболее чувствительны к сильному освещению и обеспечивают ост­рое зрение, так как с каждой ганглиозной клеткой связано лишь небольшое их чис­ло. Они могут быть разных типов, обладая специализированными фотопигментами. поглощающими свет в различных час­тях спектра. Таким образом, колбочки служат основой цветового зрения. Они наиболее чувствительны к тем длинам волн. которые сильнее всего поглощаются их фотопигментами. Зрение называют мо­нохроматическим, если активен лишь один фотопигмент, например в сумерках у человека, когда работают только палочки (рис. 4). Рис 4. Типичные рецепторные механизмы при разных типах цветового зрения. (По материалам he Oxford Compa io o A imal Behavior, 1981). Дихроматическим зрение бывает при наличии двух активных фотопигментов, как у серой белки (Sciurus caroli e sis) (рис. 4). Каждая длина волны стимулирует оба типа колбочек, но в разной степени в соответствии с их относительной чувстви­тельностью в этой части спектра.
