Visual pigments: Trading noise for fast recovery

Osorio, D and Nilsson, Dan-E LU (2004) In Current Biology 14(24). p.1051-1053
Abstract
Spontaneous activation of rhodopsin without light absorption occurs at a much lower rate in rod photoreceptors and insect rhabdoms than in cones. The difference lies in the pigment molecules themselves, and has implications for the design of visual photoreceptors.
