Light strikes the retina located in the back of our eyes, allowing us to see. Within the retina are neurons that transmit a signal to the brain when they are stimulated with light. Seen here is the surface of the retina from a mouse, with neurons converging towards the optic disc (bottom), the location where neurons exit the eye towards the brain.
