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!

Review paper on sequence memory

Together with Ignacio Polti and Christian Doeller, I have written a review on sequence memory in the hippocampus and entorhinal cortex. It’s now out in the Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience.

Sequence memory in the hippocampal-entorhinal region

Episodic memories are constructed from sequences of events. When recalling such a memory, we not only recall individual events, but we also retrieve information about how the sequence of events unfolded. Here, we focus on the role of the …

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 …
