Media coverage of paper on cognitive space

Our paper on how cognitive spaces mapped by the hippocampal-entorhinal region support our thinking was covered by different media outlets. Here is an overview of a few interesting reads in different languages.

Take a look at my SfN poster

If you are interested in the poster that I presented last week at the 2018 annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in San Diego, check out my poster.

Navigating Cognition: Spatial Codes for Human Thinking

The hippocampal formation has long been suggested to underlie both memory formation and spatial navigation. We discuss how neural mechanisms identified in spatial navigation research operate across information domains to support a wide spectrum of …

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!

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 …

An event map of memory space in the hippocampus

The hippocampus has long been implicated in both episodic and spatial memory, however these mnemonic functions have been traditionally investigated in separate research strands. Theoretical accounts and rodent data suggest a common mechanism for …
