The orientation of retinal receptors is important in the understanding of retinal physiology. The photoreceptors of spider monkey eyes tend to be oriented toward an anterior point in the eye rather than to the center of the retinal sphere. In this paper some of the implications of this finding are considered. Differences in cell orientation have been computed for both a center- and an anterior-pointing hypothesis. The meaning of the derived values is considered in some detail.
