During navigation tasks using a 'smell scape', the entorhinal cortex and ventromedial prefrontal cortex elicit grid cell-like activity.
Using a chocolatey reward, researchers discover how rats form some memories.
Study shows how hippocampal cells can represent different hypothetical scenarios consistently and systematically over time. The findings shed new light on how place cells assist in decision making and imagination.
Researchers report patters created by grid cells are modified by the shape of the environment.
New discovery could change the way we think about how the brain helps us to navigate.
The spatial dissociation in Alzheimer's disease that causes people to wander may be a result of tau accumulation in the entorhinal cortex's grid cells, a new study reports.
Grid cells have been found in the presubiculum and parasubiculum of the rat brain.
