When one contribution to the flavor experience is lost, the overall effect is diminished taste. CLINICAL TESTING The olfactory nerve is frequently overlooked in the neurologic examination.

Rods function in dim light. They have about 700 disks containing a high concentration of rhodopsin, which makes them highly sensitive to light. They are capable of detecting a single photon; however, they saturate in bright light and are not used in daytime vision. There are approximately 130 million rods in each human retina. They constitute most of the photoreceptors in the peripheral retina and are almost absent in the fovea. There is a high degree of convergence of rods to ganglion cells and only one kind of rod pigment; therefore, the rod system produces low resolution achromatic vision.
