Figure 11.5.  An intracellular recording from a single cone stimulated with different amounts of light (the cone has been taken from the turtle retina, which accounts for the relatively long time course of the response). Each trace represents the response to a brief flash that was varied in intensity. At the highest light levels, the response amplitude saturates (at about -65 mV). The hyperpolarizing response is characteristic of vertebrate photoreceptors; interestingly, some invertebrate photoreceptors depolarize in response to light. (After Schnapf and Baylor, 1987.)
