    I am curious to know if the human eye has a refresh rate. This question, as you might have guessed, arose during research for TVs. I'm not buying one, just a techy/physics guy.

    I understand that light interacts with our rods and cones and then gets converted (transducer?) to electrical signal. I can't find a good explanation, but this is where I'm at. So relating this to things I understand a little better (transducers and computers) I begin to wonder what is the human body's (more precisely our brain's) "clock". Sure we do not understand all aspects of our brain, but do we know enough to answer this question?

    I reach out to you because of your expertise in the eye. I have faith that someone in your community can shed some light on this topic (pun kinda intended).
