grid cells

Spatial and temporal reference frames anchor cognitive maps for memory

The hippocampal-entorhinal region forms cognitive maps of learned relations. Environmental boundaries are central to spatial orientation. However, trapezoidal boundary geometry distorts the regular firing patterns of entorhinal grid cells that …

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 …
