The Human Spatial Cognition Lab is seeking Ph.D. students! We currently have several funded projects on navigation and memory involving scalp and intracranial EEG, fMRI, and patient work! Please also feel free to contact Arne with more questions, email@example.com. Please apply through the University of Arizona Psychology website: http://psychology.arizona.edu/academics/apply-graduate-program
Our lab has moved to the Department of Psychology at the University of Arizona and are currently seeking applications for a postdoc position and a research specialist (lab manager) position.
Human Spatial Navigation book by Ekstrom, Spiers, Bohbot and Rosenbaum to be released August 7th! This book is intended to be an introduction to human navigation for the interested student and reader.

The Human Spatial Cognition Lab at The University of Arizona Psychology Department is seeking a postdoctoral fellow to work with the PI, Arne Ekstrom, to develop research projects involving virtual reality and memory. Projects include NIH, NSF, and departmentally sponsored research involving functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI), scalp EEG, intracranial EEG, testing of patients with focal brain lesions, and/or healthy aging individuals. Postdocs with a background in memory, navigation, aging, neuroimaging, and/or EEG recording are strongly encouraged to apply. The applicant should have a Ph.D. in neuroscience, psychology, cognitive science, or possibly bioengineering, with relevant past experience in a research lab. The…
Congratulations to SCL graduate, Dr. Jared Stokes on completing his PhD and filing his dissertation! Jared is currently working with Dr. Julie Schweitzer and Dr. Joy Geng at the UC, Davis MIND institute.
A perspective paper by graduate student Mike Starrett and Dr. Ekstrom was recently published in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience and is currently available online, here.
SCL neuroscience graduate students Dr. Millie Copara and Dr. Amber Schedlbauer recently graduated with their doctoral degrees in Neuroscience from UC, Davis. We would like to congratulate and thank each of them for all of their hard work and contributions throughout their graduate careers.
Congratulations to psychology graduate student Mike Starrett on being accepted to the UC, Davis Mentor-Mentee Program in Humanities, Arts, Cultural Studies and Social Science. Mike will be working with a UC, Davis undergraduate student on a research project during the 2018 Winter and Spring quarters. Learn more about the program here!
Please have a look at our newly updated list of lab publications. The page now includes in press articles through October 2017!
Dr. Ekstrom, postdoc Derek Huffman, and graduate student Michael Starrett propose a model of interacting networks supporting spatial cognition and navigation based on previous findings from both animal and human literature. DOI: 10.1152/jn.00531.2017
