A new study suggests grid cells are involved in a broader range of cognitive processes than previously thought.
A new study could help improve understanding of memory loss and wandering behavior in people with Alzheimer's disease.
Memories learned within a distorted coordinated system are also distorted when recalled later.
Grid cell dysfunction in the entorhinal cortex may explain why people with a genetic risk factor for Alzheimer's disease have problems with navigation.
Researchers report patters created by grid cells are modified by the shape of the environment.
Researchers propose a new theory of human thinking, suggesting our brain's navigation system is key to thinking. This may explain why our knowledge seems to be organized in spatial fashion.
The postrhinal cortex of rats contains three types of spatial cells which act together to provide a sense of location and directional orientation.
A new study reports problems with spatial navigation could predict those at risk for developing Alzheimer's disease years before symptoms appear.
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.
