New paper in Nature Communications from Spatial Cognition Lab graduate student Millie Copara and collaborators Veronique Bohbot and Jean Gotman showing theta oscillations in the human hippocampus during real-world movement!
The hippocampus has long been thought to house the neural mechanisms necessary for encoding a cognitive map of spatial environments. However, recent research in humans suggests that cognitive maps may be more distributed throughout the brain. The Spatial Cognition Lab recently published a review on this topic. Find out more here.
