Access from EThOS:
Melanopsin containing intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (ipRGCs) are primarily sensitive blue light (- 480 nm) irradiance detectors that mediate non-visual responses (NVRs) such as melatonin suppression by light and alteration of mood and alertness levels. Also, ipRGCs integrate inputs from rods and cones that are content dependent and enable fine-tuning of light-dependent NVR.
