NeuroNavigation: how the brain represents the space we live in and finds our way around

Ferrier Lecture by Professor John O'Keefe FRS, University College London


Learning about new environments or locating ourselves in familiar environments are some of the most fundamental tasks the brain performs. Professor O’Keefe will describe how the hippocampal formation uses motivations such as curiosity and a desire to map the unknown to carry out these operations. In particular he will examine the different types of neuronal activities underpinning the senses of place, direction and distance which contribute to the creation of the cognitive map.
