memory

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 …

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 …
