Expert Answer:

There are two types of photoreceptors in the human retina, rods and cones.
Rods are responsible for vision at low light levels. They do not mediate color vision, and have a low spatial acuity.
Cones are active at higher light levels and are capable of color vision. They are responsible for color vision and high spatial acuity.
