For example, evidence from honeybees that approach novel environments from a fixed magnetic direction suggests that magnetic cues may help to organize spatial behaviour, possibly by standardizing the vantage point for retinotopic
maps in unfamiliar habitats (Collett & Baron 1994).
Due to the highly retinotopic
organisation of these cells in the retina (that is to say, neighbouring objects in the visual field are processed by neighbouring cells in the retina and cortex) the signals derived at this stage are able to contribute towards processing the direction of a moving object.
Another examines the interplay between plasticity and visual adaptation in early visual cortex, with techniques aimed to modulate retinotopic
organization of primary visual cortex.
In all subjects the retinotopic
areas were defined by using the classical experimental paradigm for retinotopic
mapping (rotating wedges and expanding rings).
