The hippocampus constructs interval-scale sequence memories and generalizes temporal structure across sequences

The hippocampus constructs sequence memories that generalize temporal relations across sequences

Interval-scale sequence memories in the hippocampus generalize temporal structure across sequences

Cognitive maps for spatial and temporal memory

The hippocampal-entorhinal region forms cognitive maps of space and stimulus relations in general. In this talk, I will address how cognitive maps underlie human spatial and temporal memory. First, I will show that boundary geometry distorts spatial …

Piecing together cognitive maps one dimension at a time

In this issue of Neuron, Park et al. (2020) show that the brain forms unified cognitive maps of relational knowledge. The hippocampal-entorhinal region and medial prefrontal cortices spontaneously combine multiple, distinct rank orders to …

The spontaneous formation of two-dimensional cognitive maps: Preview in Neuron

I had the pleasure of writing a Preview for Neuron for a recent paper by Erie Boorman’s group. It’s out now!

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 …
