Investigating entorhinal maps for human memory using VR and fMRI

Let's meet at SfN 19

Going to SfN this year? I’m looking forward to seeing you in Chicago!

PhD thesis defended!

Today I defended my PhD thesis.

German summary of research on cognitive spaces

Magazine article in Gehirn & Geist [German].

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 …

New paper out in eLife: Mapping sequence structure in the human lateral entorhinal cortex

My new paper with Lorena Deuker and Christian Doeller is now out in eLife!

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 …

Preprint update: Mapping sequence structure in the human lateral entorhinal cortex

Here is another update to my preprint on temporal mapping in the entorhinal cortex!

Abstract for SfN nanosymposium accepted

My abstract for a talk at the 2019 Annual Meeting of the Society for Neuroscience was accepted.

Updated preprint on grid pattern distortions and spatial memory

I have updated my preprint on how distorted grid-cell firing patterns might deform our memory on bioRxiv!
