Rods and cones in retina: colorized scanning electron micrograph (SEM) of rods and cones, showing the structure of the eye retina. Rods (green) are long nerve cells which respond to dim light, enabling images to be detected. Cones (blue) are shorter cone-like cells which detect colour. Rods and cones pass visual signals through the optic nerve to the brain. Pigment cells block light from passing further. Magnification: unknown.

Origin and distribution of cranial nerves (CN) VI, IV, and III, which innervate extraocular eye muscles. The focus of the upper part of this figure includes the abducens nerve (CN VI) and the general somatic efferent component of the oculomotor nerve (CN III), which are essential for horizontal gaze. The lower part of this figure depicts the muscles of the eye and their relationship with CN III, IV, and VI.
