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 …

Virtual Poster at CEMS 2020

The 2020 Context and Episodic Memory Symposium wil take place virtually and I am excited to present some new work on sequence memory.

Sequence memories in the hippocampal-entorhinal region scale to temporal reference frames

Time is the fundamental dimension along which we organize our experience. For example, sequences of events shape our episodic memory. The hippocampus and, more recently, the anterior-lateral entorhinal cortex have been implicated in memory for event …

New preprint on bioRxiv

Our new preprint on learning to physically navigate an abstract quantity space is now on bioRxiv.

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 …

PhD thesis defended!

Today I defended my PhD thesis.

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 …
