  1. Are you talking about rods and cones?

    Rods are more around the periphery of the retina, are more sensitive after dark adaptation (absolute limen) and see only variations of black and white. In contrast, cones can see color, have better visual acuity and are more in the center of the retina. In fact, the the fovea contains only cones.

    In addition, I searched Google under the key words "human rods cones" to get these possible sources:
