Grid Cells and the Dynamics of Entorhinal Cortex
Abstract: Grid cells and place cells are often called the brain's GPS since these neurons enable spatial localization within an environment. Their discovery was the basis for the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine. Professor Hasselmo will discuss how oscillatory networks enable their function and how they play a key role in memory.
