I am a cognitive neuroscientist at the Max Planck Institute for Human Cognitive and Brain Sciences in Leipzig (Germany). My research interests include spatial navigation and episodic memory. I am most curious about how coding principles in the hippocampal-entorhinal region enable flexible cognition. In my research, I combine fMRI with behavioral experiments and virtual reality technology.
We form cognitive maps of the space around us to navigate and to remember important locations. But what happens if the coordinate system of our cognitive maps – the regular firing patterns of grid cells – is distorted? Our new paper shows that this results in distortions of our spatial memories.
