Fall 2014

The Case: It’s a warm Fourth of July and you are walking across the park to your favorite picnic spot. You are allergic to and highly phobic about bee stings.

You realize that your Epi-pen was left in the car, so you panic and begin sprinting back to the car to get it.’

You then begin to visually see your worst nightmare. It begins with receptions as the eye receives incoming light from the external environment and the focuses it onto the retina. Once the retina receives it the image of the visual stimulus is captured and the photoreceptors within the retina begin to detect the image. Transduction then occurs as the photoreceptors change the light into signals, which can travel along the optic never to the brain, where the information can then be processed. At the same time, the process of transmission also occurs, as the information from the electric impulses that travel from the optic never to the brain carries the visual information from the retina to the visual cortex in the occipital lobe of the brain. It is then organized and interpreted into the image we see, which, in this case, would be the bee threatening us.
