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!
Our new paper in Journal of Cognitive Neuroscience by Jennifer Lieberman shows that the hippocampus plays a role in both associative and recency-based mechanisms of temporal order processing!
New paper by graduate student Jared Stokes demonstrates roles for CA3/DG in pattern separation and completion during a novel spatial learning paradigm. Jared’s paper also suggests a new role for CA1 in binding geometric templates with existing memories stored in CA3/DG!
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.
