Mapping sequence structure in the human lateral entorhinal cortex

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

PhD Thesis Defense

Hippocampal-entorhinal codes for space, time and cognition How do we remember important events? Focusing on episodic memory, I explored the idea that coding principles discovered in spatial navigation research are shared across cognitive domains. The hippocampal-entorhinal region might support our memory through the mapping of cognitive spaces; allowing us to remember where and when events occurred. Cognitive maps stored in memory can guide behavior through the simulation of possible future trajectories.

Hippocampal-entorhinal codes for space, time and cognition

Talk at CEMS 2019

I am excited to hear that will have the opportunity to give a talk at the 2019 edition of the Context and Episodic Memory Symposium.

Time is memory: Temporal relationships shape memories in the hippocampal-entorhinal region

The temporal organization of our experience is central to episodic memory, thought to be supported by the hippocampal-entorhinal region. The lateral entorhinal cortex (EC) carries temporal information in navigating rodents and its human homologue, …

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.
