Colorful images – seen through the eyes of mice

Researchers at the University Medical Center Göttingen have studied how nerve cells in the eye react to different color combinations. They found special cells in the eyes of mice that respond particularly well to contrasts between green and ultraviolet light. This could enable the animals to see the horizon clearly and use it for orientation. The scientific paper was published in "Nature Communications".
