According to a new study, the brain's internal navigation system works in the same fashion as the grid cell system.
A new study reports problems with spatial navigation could predict those at risk for developing Alzheimer's disease years before symptoms appear.
Using a chocolatey reward, researchers discover how rats form some memories.
Memories learned within a distorted coordinated system are also distorted when recalled later.
Researchers report the firing patterns of grid cells are less stable in older adults. This, they say, could be why older people have more problems with spatial navigation than younger people.
Researchers discover grid cells can help mice to effectively map their location in the dark.
A new study investigates how we are able to assess new locations and become orientated with the help of visual cues.
Two new studies advance understanding of how the brain encodes episodic memories. The findings have the potential to develop new avenues of treatment for memory loss associated with Alzheimer's disease and TBI.
A drop of testosterone under the tongue allowed women to better orient themselves in navigational tests, a new study reports.
