Parallel striatal and hippocampal systems for landmarks and boundaries in spatial memory
How the memory systems centered on the hippocampus and dorsal striatum interact to support behavior remains controversial. We used functional MRI while people learned the locations of objects byExpand

Evidence for grid cells in a human memory network
Grid cells in the entorhinal cortex of freely moving rats provide a strikingly periodic representation of self-location which is indicative of very specific computational mechanisms. However, theExpand

Associative reinforcement provides a powerful explanation of learned behavior. However, an unproven but long-held conjecture holds that spatial learning can occur incidentally rather than byExpand

Anterior Hippocampus and Goal-Directed Spatial Decision Making
Planning spatial paths through our environment is an important part of everyday life and is supported by a neural system including the hippocampus and prefrontal cortex. Here we investigated theExpand

Functional topography of the human entorhinal cortex
Despite extensive research on the role of the rodent medial and lateral entorhinal cortex (MEC/LEC) in spatial navigation, memory and related disease, their human homologues remain elusive. Here, weExpand

Establishing the Boundaries: The Hippocampal Contribution to Imagining Scenes
When we visualize scenes, either from our own past or invented, we impose a viewpoint for our “mind's eye” and we experience the resulting image as spatially coherent from that viewpoint. TheExpand

Lateralized human hippocampal activity predicts navigation based on sequence or place memory
The hippocampus is crucial for both spatial navigation and episodic memory, suggesting that it provides a common function to both. Here we adapt a spatial paradigm, developed for rodents, for useExpand

Hippocampal-Prefrontal Theta Oscillations Support Memory Integration
Integration of separate memories forms the basis of inferential reasoning--an essential cognitive process that enables complex behavior. Considerable evidence suggests that both hippocampus andExpand

Grid-cell representations in mental simulation
TLDR
We provide evidence for grid-like representations of absolute imagined direction at a resolution of 30° in the human entorhinal cortex during virtual and imagined navigation. Expand

Movement-Related Theta Rhythm in Humans: Coordinating Self-Directed Hippocampal Learning
A multimodal neuroimaging study of virtual spatial navigation extends the role of the hippocampal theta rhythm to human memory and self-directed learning.
