Using augmented reality, researchers discover how rats recalibrate learned relationships between a landmark, speed, distance and time to create a locational 'map' in the brain.
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.
Using a model commonly used in machine learning, researchers discover how the brain encodes spatial maps and stores information while at rest.
SCN2A, a gene commonly associated with intellectual ability, plays an essential role in memory formation and replay, a new study reports.
A new study reports, contrary to popular belief, place cells in the dentate gyrus do not remap. Instead, memory discrimination is controlled by increased co-firing of place cells and the neurons that organize which place cells discharge.
A new study looks how it may be possible to help reduce trauma associated with bad memories while we sleep.
A lack of adaptability in hippocampal place cells could be key to memory deficits in schizophrenia, researchers report.
A new study reveals how patterns of neural activity in the retrosplenial cortex assist with navigation and spatial memory.
