Grid Cells and Cortical Maps
Today's lecture is by Nobel Prize winner May-Britt Moser on structures in the brain that enable spatial orientation and navigation. She covers the history of the discovery of place and grid cells in the mammalian brain, as well a many details of her own work in this area. The specific research she covers was focused on the hippocampus, but the previous HTC posts covers Jeff Hawkins and Numenta's theoretical work on showing how these same grid cell structures might be a significant part of how the neo-cortex functions.
