Here are four differences:

1) to mirror the image
2) change the dominant fill
3) forward and back movement arrows reverse direction
4) forward and back projection of hands-fingers reverse direction

and there are several more...

You can read about the Receptive View in the Lessons in SignWriting  
Textbook online or in PDF:
