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).

The SERIOL model of orthographic analysis proposed mechanisms for converting visual input into a serial encoding of letter order, which involved hemisphere-specific processing at the retinotopic level.

As information from the eyes enters the brain, it still carries the imprint of the retinal organization (that is, retinotopic organization).
