entorhinal cortex

New paper out in Science

My latest paper, entitled ‘Navigating Cognition: Spatial Codes for Human Thinking’ just got published in Science. Together with Peter Gardenfors, Edvard Moser and Christian Doeller, I propose a theoretical framework for domain-general processing in the hippocampal-entorhinal region.

New preprint on temporal mapping in the entorhinal cortex online

I have uploaded a new preprint on temporal mapping in the human medial temporal lobe to bioRxiv!

Structuring Time in Human Lateral Entorhinal Cortex

Remembering event sequences is central to episodic memory and thought to be supported by the hippocampal-entorhinal region. We previously demonstrated that the hippocampus maps spatial and temporal distances between events encountered along a fixed …

Let's connect at SfN18!

In just a few days, I will be on my way to San Diego for SfN18! It would be great to see you there! I will be presenting a poster on temporal mapping in the human medial temporal lobe on Wednesday (7 November, 8:00-12:00). It would be great to see you there!

Deforming the metric of cognitive maps distorts memory

Environmental boundaries anchor cognitive maps that support memory. However, trapezoidal boundary geometry distorts the regular firing patterns of entorhinal grid cells proposedly providing a metric for cognitive maps. Here, we test the impact of …

Distorting the metric of spatial memory

Entorhinal grid cells are characterized by spatially periodic patterns of activity and have been suggested to provide a metric of space. However, environmental geometry distorts grid-cell firing patterns in highly polarized trapezoidal compared to …

Hexadirectional coding of visual space in human entorhinal cortex

Entorhinal grid cells map the local environment, but their involvement beyond spatial navigation remains elusive. We examined human functional MRI responses during a highly controlled visual tracking task and show that entorhinal cortex exhibited a …

Temporal mapping in the human entorhinal cortex

Episodic memories are thought to be formed by binding events to their spatial as well as temporal context and medial temporal lobe structures have been implicated in the formation of such integrated memories. But which neural mechanisms allow us to …

Grid-cell representations in mental simulation

Anticipating the future is a key motif of the brain, possibly supported by mental simulation of upcoming events. Rodent single-cell recordings suggest the ability of spatially tuned cells to represent subsequent locations. Grid-like representations …
