This time period is almost as long as it takes for cardiac muscle to contract and fully relax. Therefore, itis impossible for individual contractions to summate to give a sustained contraction. Remember that during the refractory period, a cell is unresponsive to further stimulation.

The physiological processes which are occurring at photoreceptors, and the way that neural information generated from them is dealt with by the nervous system, is far from fully understood. 7) which face in opposite directions and are used essentially to obtain directional information.
