Abstract

Cone pairs fused along the adjacent faces of their inner segments are called double cones. They are found in the retinas of many fish. In this article the hypothesis is studied that states that the shape of the sunfish double cones confers a differential polarization sensitivity on those cones. A background for further elaboration of this hypothesis is presented.
