In the recent study, it has been seen that the eyes of human beings are having a natural vision for the night vision. It can look under the starlight as well as on moonlight as the retina of the eye changes to the software as well as hardware of the light sensing cells to create a kind of the night vision.

It has been found that the eyes of human have got an inbuilt night vision mode, as per scientists. The retinas circuits seem to be unchanged as well as they are programmed for some kind of specific tasks which are adaptable in different light conditions. The scientists have now identified about the retina reprograms for the low light.

According to Greg Field, who is an assistant professor at Duke University in the US said that to see under the starlight, biology has had to reach a place of the limit of seeing the elementary particle from the universe, a single photon. The findings of the study are now published in the journal Neuron which shows that the reprogramming can happen in retinals cells which are said to be sensitive to motion. In the good lighting condition, it can able to identify the presence as well as the direction of the moving object which is said to be key to the survival for many animals.

In another study, which was done with the issue retinas it conducted that under the microscope which was equipped with the night vision eyepieces that is present in the very dark room; the researchers have found that the retinal cells got sensitive due to the upward movement change in behavior in low light conditions. It is said that these up neurons will get fire after they detect the movement which is not only for upward.
