1. The Hippocampus as a Cognitive Map … of Social Space.

    Neuron 87(1):9 (2015) PMID 26139366

    The traditional view of the hippocampus is that it creates a cognitive map to navigate physical space. Here, in this issue of Neuron, Tavares et al. (2015) show that the human hippocampus maps dimensions of social space, indicating a function in the service of navigating everyday life. Copyrigh...
  2. Perspectives on 2014 Nobel Prize.

    Hippocampus 25(6):679 (2015) PMID 25787853

    In celebration of the 2014 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine, this issue of Hippocampus includes a collection of commentaries from a broad range of perspectives on the significance of position coding neurons in the hippocampal region. From the perspective of this student of hippocampal physi...
  3. Orbitofrontal cortex encodes memories within value-based schemas and represents contexts that guide memory retrieval.

    Journal of Neuroscience 35(21):8333 (2015) PMID 26019346 PMCID PMC4444550

    There are a substantial number of studies showing that the orbitofrontal cortex links events to reward values, whereas the hippocampus links events to the context in which they occur. Here we asked how the orbitofrontal cortex contributes to memory where context determines the reward values asso...

  6. Time cells in the hippocampus: a new dimension for mapping memories.

    Nature Reviews: Neuroscience 15(11):732 (2014) PMID 25269553 PMCID PMC4348090

    Recent studies have revealed the existence of hippocampal neurons that fire at successive moments in temporally structured experiences. Several studies have shown that such temporal coding is not attributable to external events, specific behaviours or spatial dimensions of an experience. Instead...

  10. Can we reconcile the declarative memory and spatial navigation views on hippocampal function?

    Neuron 83(4):764 (2014) PMID 25144874 PMCID PMC4148642

    Some argue that hippocampus supports declarative memory, our capacity to recall facts and events, whereas others view the hippocampus as part of a system dedicated to calculating routes through space, and these two contrasting views are pursued largely independently in current research. Here we ...

  14. Hippocampal representation of related and opposing memories develop within distinct, hierarchically organized neural schemas.

    Neuron 83(1):202 (2014) PMID 24910078 PMCID PMC4082468

    Recent evidence suggests that the hippocampus may integrate overlapping memories into relational representations, or schemas, that link indirectly related events and support flexible memory expression. Here we explored the nature of hippocampal neural population representations for multiple feat...

  16. A unified mathematical framework for coding time, space, and sequences in the hippocampal region.

    Journal of Neuroscience 34(13):4692 (2014) PMID 24672015 PMCID PMC3965792

    The medial temporal lobe (MTL) is believed to support episodic memory, vivid recollection of a specific event situated in a particular place at a particular time. There is ample neurophysiological evidence that the MTL computes location in allocentric space and more recent evidence that the MTL ...
