  • Hippocampal maps of space change across tasks. The mechanisms of this effect remain unclear. To examine this, we recorded activity of hippocampal neurons in monkeys navigating the same virtual maze during two different tasks: a foraging task requiring only cue guided navigation, and a memory task also requiring context-object association. Within each task, individual neurons had spatially-selective response fields, enabling a linear classifier to decode position in the virtual environment in… CONTINUE READING
