Researchers discover grid cells can help mice to effectively map their location in the dark.
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.
Memories learned within a distorted coordinated system are also distorted when recalled later.
According to a new study, the brain's internal navigation system works in the same fashion as the grid cell system.
During navigation tasks using a 'smell scape', the entorhinal cortex and ventromedial prefrontal cortex elicit grid cell-like activity.
A lack of adaptability in hippocampal place cells could be key to memory deficits in schizophrenia, researchers report.
A new study suggests grid cells are involved in a broader range of cognitive processes than previously thought.
