    I want to know whether DNA inside our brain neuron cells helps us process images of what we see through our eyes.

    If you want to know how the "brain neuron cells" process visual information, Rahul, you don't want to study it at the level of the DNA molecule. You want to look at it at the level of the expression of that molecule as a dynamical system of interconnected neuronal-axonal "fiber cables" and dendritic arbors. Check this out:
