Behind the paper: blog post on new article

I wrote a short blog post summarizing our new paper on memory distortions.

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 …

New paper out in Nature Human Behaviour: Deforming the metric of cognitive maps distorts memory

Distorted spatial memories in immersive VR

We form cognitive maps of the space around us to navigate and to remember where important events take place. In an immersive VR experiment, participants wore a head-mounted display and navigated different environments using a motion platform to learn …

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.

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!

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!
